    It is going to take a lot of digging and work. Hopefully there are still records somewhere. I am positive there was no research done to retrieving my medical records from the Army when I submitted form DD 149. Or such poor records were kept in Vietnam that they may have been destroyed if they were received by my unit?

    Russ....if you haven't done this already....

    I'll throw out one more option for you to pursue which I would say is a protocol for someone like yourself.
    In the link below you can request copies of your military records.
    See the middle box at top of the page regarding the form SF-180.
    Fill it out completely and accurately.....and just wait it out.

    https://www.archives.gov/veterans/mi...ervice-records

    It will take months but you will be current with what they have for on record for you.
    You never know what gems of info you may uncover.

    Yes....I did it some a few year ago....waited (6) and got a packet full of info including health record history.

    Hope that helps....

    Thank You once again for all the valuable information, it really does help (I didn't know about form SF-180). I will get the form submitted very soon. I really am praying that somewhere there are medical records and they will be found.

    Semper Fi,
