It seems my husband is just another addition to a problem the VA is continuing to fight. My husband served aboard the USS Joseph Strauss 71-74 and was up river and off shore of Vietnam. He has Type II diabetes and has been denied by the VA. He has to prove he was up-river and when. We have tried to get (we have to pay for them) the deck logs but until recently they were classified. I see others have to prove diffenrent things. Apparently, there is no standard proof required. It appears to vary from vet to vet! We will continue this fight and hope the best of luck for all of you.
