Hey guys i ordered a 10 inch hydraulic jack plate last week, Kylie said i gotta lock the :baitmonkey: up for awhile but im sure i'll find a decent excuse to let him out once and awhile! Sorry i havent been very active on the board, just got alot of things goin on right now thats tryin to bring me down, but i've made it this far so i dont plan on giving up now. The Russ Bringger tourney was a joke didnt have any legal fish along with over half the boats but can you believe 40 yes forty pounds won it? Shocked the crap outta everyone the guys big fish was almost 9 so he had a 8 lb average, he had a good day!!! Other than that got my first taste of fishing really clear water didnt do too bad got three the biggest was almost 3. I dont know if i'll be able to post much this week but im gonna try, me and Kylie are going to have to go to Washington DC soon to appeal the findings the medical board came up with, it was a kick in the teeth if you ask me. The people that sent me to 2 different wars are basically telling me to go fly a kite, but im gonna fight them with everything i have so hopefully something good, if not for me then the next poor guy, will come of this. Talk to you guys soon. Dave

Dave, If you need anything let me know. I'm standing with you on this one! Its been my experience that they will almost always deny the first time to run you off but if you keep on fighting things change. Never give up and stay strong!

Thanks Drew i know you got my back! Fish4Fun i already got the VA sqaured away this problems with the military. see the military wont let the VA do medical boards because theyre not "military" the drs are good enough to treat military personell but not trusted enough to declare them medically retired. Go figure. Thanks Keith i sometimes feel like God has done so much for me i feel selfish asking for more. Dave

That does seem strange. Are you by chance on ' TDRL ' ( temporary disabled retirement list ) ?

Dave, Cast your cares unto the Lord for he careth for you. Keep casting Dave and he will keep catching. Never feel like you are troubling God or being selfish by making your petitions known to God.

nope they denied me for that, which they do for people they dont think are gonna improve. The way it was explained to me if they put you on TDRL they basically can re-evaluate at any time so if you improve they can cut your disability rating. Its not like im wanting to get paid from the military for the rest of my life,i'd love to get back in the workforce, but truth is theres not to many people gonna hire me in my current condition. What they're offering would barely make my truck and insurance payments. Keith i really needed to hear that, thank you! Dave

Youre quite welcome, but i didnt do anything special. In fact i had no desire to get shot at, there wasnt really anything going on when i went in the Marines, i had plans to get on with the US marshals and the guy i was talking to said go in any branch of service (but my Dad was a Marine) and do 4 years in the infantry and id go to the front of the line when i got out. But the crap really hit the fan in Afghanistan when i was in boot camp, and a month after i got out i was on a plane to Afghanistan with a machinegun in my hands. Then Iraq and after that all my "perfect game plan" went to crap. But you gotta make the best outta what youve got, and im VERY blessed despite the things that have happened. Thanks for your support! Dave
