Finally after 4 years my husband got his well deserved 100% disability from the VA. Talk about a long draining fight. He fought to stay in the Air Force and he was medically discharged after 17 years. Anthrax shots have crippled his 6'4 body. A spinal fusion that made things worse has him in pain all the time. But last week he got his letter saying he is 100%! I am so happy for him. He will be able to have base privileges again. We can now take our oldest daughter to the base we met at. I got stationed there 3 years after he got there, and life has been quite a journey! I had to share my news with people who would understand!

It was so close to retirement. Everyone thought he would be able to stay in or at least be medically retired, but no such luck...we are so relived because we can finally breath financially. Thank God!
