    I hurt my knee on active duty 3 years ago and it's still not getting any better. :( Had lots of excuses from MANY doctors but no answer why a previously otherwise healthy young soldier had knee problems, or how to make it better.

    Last APFT I took, I got a 268/300 on. Not a PT stud by any stretch, but not exactly shabby, and well over the Army standard of 180.

    Then this stupid knee started acting up again, and sometimes I can't even walk, much less run two miles in 14:30 like I used to. :mad:

    Damn doctors......gr.........

    I need to go get a bottle of Jack or something...

    Have you been to the VA. Not sure if it applies to you or not but you could get disability for it even if you can't prove it was service related. Most people get something from the VA.

    Sorry about your luck and i hope your knee heals itself. If you ever miss the military life you could come up here and i could give you a tour of the base with a stop at the pub:D

    Yep. Was car shopping Sunday, ran into a salesman that was prior Army. My age or younger, got "kicked out" for medical. Hurt his shoulder.

    Drawing 30% of his base pay (tax free) for the rest of his life now. Couldn't tell he was injured in the slightest.

    Friend of mine is also drawing 30% for his knees as well. Didn't even have surgery on them.

    Go see the VA if you weren't directed to.

    LOL... yeppers, I used to have that song on our puter at the fire station, but when the old puter crached I lost it.

    I also like that song of his called "classified" or "classifieds" something along those lines... about the guy buying the truck. :haha:

    Sorry for the hi-jack Tim.. :doah:
