You have your DD214s? File a claim with the VA for sleep apnea and ED, if you have it and you'll get paid for it! You'll never know what you'll get until you file a VA claim. It was a routine exam by the VA when I got out of active duty after serving 12 yrs and the VA gave me 20% for a bladder cancer operation back in the late 70s when I was still in active duty, but I'm refiling to have it adjusted/increased due to a new ruling concerning agent orange associated with my diabetes type II and it's after effects over time when I was stationed in U-Tapao AB, Thailand in the mid 70s, that was just recently added in 2010 to the VA's list known as presumptive conditions I just found out about it a few years ago just by browsing the VA website and from what I read on other forums.

Nah, I don't have anything Art.  I didn't even know what ED was until I clicked on that link.  My eight month old boy could have answered that one.  My first and final.  As far as the agent orange, I never made it to Viet Nam.  I got locked in to and wound up in the Navy so that I would not have to go in the Army.  The closest I would probably would have been was off the coast.  So, I can't even use the VA clinic.  Thanks for the info though.
