AO and KOREA DMZ VETS NEW
by: Johnny Bittle

I served on the DMZ in Korea in 1971, so I know AO exposure isn't an issue. I have chronic gouty arthritis with multiple flare-up per year. I tried all the meds and none work, one hip has been replaced twice and need the other done. My concern is will the VA just blow this off as I am in my mid 60s, however I also have the type II diabetes. My question is should I file a Claim?
