I served onboard the USS Grasp (ARS-24) homeport at Pearl

I served onboard the USS Grasp (ARS-24) homeport at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii from December 1959 to October 1963. Every year the ship made Westpac Cruise including the Republic of Vietnam. In 1962 the ship operated in Danang Harbor, but returned to port where the crew were allowed on the pier and downtown Danang. Therefore, qualified us to have set our booths on the ground. As a result, the presumptions of Agent Orange herbeside exposure should be awarded also to me and all my shipments on the Grasp. To me especially because in 2003 I was subjected to hormonal and radiation therapy for prostate cancer. That made me suffer ED. I will appreciate clarification of this before my demise. This is very important! Thanks.

I am an active duty officer with 15 years of active duty

Hi, I am an active duty officer with 15 years of active duty service, obligated to be in active duty until 2016. One of my colleague recommended looking into the selected reserves to serve 2 years but gain 4 years of credit, which would bring me to 20 years of creditable service for retirement pay at age 60. Does this make sense?

. Is a military marriage certificate legal if the person

Hi. Is a military marriage certificate legal if the person has deceased and was involved with a foreign person and has named that foreign person his next of kin in his will? I'm now informed that I have to pay an amount of 3000 USD to the military lawyer for the certificate before any information can be disclosed to me of the death certificate, his will and of the inheritance being handed over to me. He was retired and in the states in the military hospital when he died. There has been enormous pressure put on me for having to send this money for the certificate. This is all very suspicious to me. He has left all he owned to me.
