At this moment a very dear personal friend of mine, a Marine I've known since second grade, is dealing with the fact that his VA doctor advised him to "get his personal affairs in order".

While I am paying certain physical penalties for a decade of coke use twenty one years ago, he is coming to grips with the fact that his own much more recent long term use is exacting a heavy toll on his now dying body.

Four pulmonary embolisms in his lungs, numerous spots on internal organs, widow maker clogs in the major arteries...he is running out of options and, perhaps for the first time in his life, he is truly scared.

His kids are grown and fully self sufficient but like most students today, mired in debt, and he is leaving this to a very beautiful and vibrant wife, all in North Carolina, where rumor has it, the local VA is among the very very crummiest of facilities.

The one bright spot is, we did manage to get him the full 100% service connected disability rating and all the benefits, so his wife will not be left totally in the lurch.
