    • Yep , The VA told me the same thing.  The twin 40 MM  was not to pleasant either . We also fired 81 MM Mortars with a piggyback 50 Cal  attached . All with a GI helmet and sound powered phones  if you were the gunner or trainer , the loader and hot shell man had nothing and they stood closer to the gun than  anyone! But the evidence that the VA wants is PROOF that you were  on a gun crew and the date and time and how many rounds were fired and what for so on and so on. Information the was never recorded in any log book I ever seen. Proof ? Most servicemen of our days are lucky if they even have any records of service. How can you prove that you were on a gun crew and fired 50 50 rounds of 3" 50 rounds at a target on any certain date There was no records kept but they can tell you exactly what days you were on earned leave. I repeat THE VA IS WORTHLESS.  It took me 15 years to get what little disability they gave me and that was after a federal judge told them they had too but they would not make it retroactive nor give me enough to qualify for GI insurance. I was told directly in person at the Phoenix VA office that if I appealed one more time that they would take it all away.  As far as the Vets org's they  are primarily drinking clubs and of little use.            I have had friends who died in agony from Agent Orange exposure who had a hell of a time PROVING their exposure  to it..  
    • Dave,  All this stuff is advancing so fast it's hard to even read about the advances and uses . For instances I have now read that most major fire departments have drones to get views of the fire that they  are fighting without risking a helicopter. Pretty soon they are going to have too have traffic control just for drones. For an old foggy like me who grew up without TV until 1945. When I lived in Deming ,NM  you could watch the big drones followed around by a Cessna  going through testing. Some of the first operational drones over seas were remotely controlled from Fort Bliss Texas , they solicited a bunch of old  radio control model operators to fly them before the young guys caught up to the training . Just because you can fly a regular aircraft does not make you capable of flying a drone on a monitor. Younger people who have grew up with video games have a definite edge. These days you can almost be sure someone is watching you with a camera or a drone. Its just a matter of time before someone invents a small drone with some sort of gold nugget detector, be to late for Grubstake and Me !!
    • I see nothing to indicate a meteorite.  What do you see?
    • That's a great idea Dave! Could be a real help in some areas near to cell towers but behind a hill etc. I can't seem to find any small ones. Do you know where to look?
    • Good for you Terri. At least you are able to get out and stay safe. Tom H.
