  1. Note: If you were never in a War Zone, but injured while on active duty, you may be entitled to VA compensation payments! Check with a Veteran Service Office at your local American Legion Office!!
    ‘Requesting a Registration and Screening for Non Ionizing Radiation Exposure from Air Surveillance Radar, (IE – Hawk Missile System Radar) for long ours of exposure during your Military Service’. Do not forget the U. S. Coast Guard personnel that were station on LORAN stations. http://www.veteransinfo.org/atomicinfo.html

    Refer the VA Contact to the
    ‘Veterans Health Benefits Handbook of July 2003, Chapter 3, Page 19. Ref: Ionizing Radiation Review, Volume 5, February 2011’,

    If you cannot get a Proper Response back with an Appointment for the Screening, Be calm, Polite, Patient and move on to Another VA Center where you are seeking proper support for this.
    Remind the VA of Thousands of us ADA Veterans are getting this Registration and Screening made at our local VA.
