I was in the tonjkin gulf aboard the USS Intrepid in 67-68. I have type 2 diabitis, heart problems, breathing problems, and numerous other problems. I even landed in Vietnam when they flew me off the ship aboard the COD to the hospital in Subic Bay, Philipines.The navy department conviently can't find the flight records. I have even found a crewman that flew on the COD to confirm the routes the COD flew and he said they always had to refuel in Vietnam on the way back to the ship. If the ship was in Vietnam waters and I was on the ship and the next day I was in the hospital I had to get there someway. IT was too far to swim.But I guess its just another way to deny compensation.Put me on the list to protest the way the Navy got shafted for our duty to our country. DON'T GET ME WRONG, i LOVE OUR COUNTRY AND WOULD GO AGAIN IF I COULD. I would just not trust the Navy Dept. to keep all the records I didn't even think about (much less need)
