It’s been a while!

Looking back to when I last posted to this blog, once again I’ve been backward in recording our journey.  I’ve spent a lot of time in the last couple of months putting together a submission for Department of Veterans’ Affairs and Veterans’ Review Board.  This involved a lot of research and writing and finally topped out at 28 pages.  The purpose of the submission was to provide as much detail as we could for the Veterans’ Review Board, so that they can make a decision on Rick’s claim for war-caused Post traumatic Stress Disorder.  This claim has been hanging around for three years now, and we just want to get it finished and over with.  A date has now been set, and Jeff Wake (Rick’s advocate and close friend) and I meet with the Board probably on May 28.  Rick will not be attending as it will put way too much stress on him, but we’re hoping that Dr Malcolm Roberts, Rick’s trick cyclist will be able to attend and put forward the case.  I also have a few things I want to say!!!  Now that that is finished, I can spend more time working on the Family Tree.  It has been sadly neglected in the last two months.
