in response to davnashville... I am a stage 4 cancer survivor to my throat I got from iraq.30%for the cancer&50%for ptsd.i was denied aw2,tsgli,grants because I didnt get shot.however,i was a month from being dead from the short cut they took to burn garbage.meb stated"service connected from iraq",not combat related,so I pay taxes on my dissability.whats od is that it says"instrument of war"on my retirement orders.i dont get the benefits I should get,why?aw2 program said I have to have a noncurable cancer to qualify,yet my comrade who has pins in his hands qualifies.this had been devistating for me.i was in the army for 14years and never have I been treated like this. I gave my all and they lost a good leader and mentor to many soldiers.i feel really used.VA is still reviewing my case and I turned in my claim 6mo before I medically retired.retired feb2010.they took my juggler vein,a long muscle from my ear to my collar bone,95lymph nodes and my tonsils,all on the right side of my neck.also gave me chemo and radiation.this has mentally,physically and financially destroyed me.why do I have to get paid way less than I did in the military for something that isnt even my fault?I feel like I have been slapped in the face and they know they r wrong and they still get away with it._ssg(ret)b
