Hello,

Yet another Expert here, only this time, unlike some previous Experts, I am a Military Law Expert, which includes VA issues. I don't see where you say what your current medical condition/s are that you are seeking a disability rating for. Can you share that with me? Also, just to be clear, did you step foot on Vietnamese soil during your deployments or were you strictly a blue water sailor?
