Hi guys,
I served on the Basilone from 69 to 73. During that time we did go on the gunline in Vietnam. At one point around 2007 the place I worked at shut down and I went to the VA for healthcare benefits.
They asked if I was a vietnam vet and I said yes and they signed me up. I found another job and used their insurance until I retired this spring.
Now they are telling me I can't get the insurance because I wasn't in country. I was getting it years ago now I can't.
Anyone have information I would appreciate it.
Thanks,
Eric Harris BM3 ( Harry )
