Grumpy,
How come you got more comments on this than on the silly post from the 21st? Oh well... Don't forget to check with your humor NCOIC or OIC each day.... should I send you the "rubber chicken"? He's the same one who deployed to SFOR 14 and OIF 3 with me.... She's got the medals to prove it... and the CAB (Chicken Action Badge)...
Don't forget, there are really bad people who are trying to kill you at random times....double tap everyone who needs shootin'.

=D

Hi, I’m Jon from VAJoe.com. We recently released our VA Benefits Calculator (http://www.vajoe.com/benefits/benefits_calc.html) and we are trying to get some feedback on it from MilBloggers. I figured since you did a milblog interview with us, you might be interested. It’s a pretty cool new feature: you select your age, rank, etc., input your income, education level, disability level, and a variety of other factors. Then, it tells you which VA Benefits you are eligible for. Anyway, if you have a minute I’d love for you to try it out and let me know what you think. You can contact me at jonbjoe@vajoe.com. If you like it and think it's a useful tool please help spread the word. Thanks for the time, and keep up the excellent job you do on the blog.

Grumpy, I love the VA hospital...it only took a year after I got back from Iraq to get to see them...and usually takes about 2-3 months to get an appointment for anything. Don't get hurt!
