Private Message Spam

Hello everyone,

Thank you to all of you who have alerted us to the PM spamming from earlier today. I apologize for the inconvenience. While we do have securities in place, we are not always able to catch all spam, and we are trying to figure out how this one got around our system. If you received a message from jegac1 please do respond to it or share any of your information.

Jegac1 has now been blocked from the CSN site.

Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience. Please continue to report any email spammers or questionable behavior you see.

Best regards,

VA question

I am rated 40% with VA disability compensation. 10% for cystic ovaries/ovarian dysfunction. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer six weeks ago. I was told it is an automatic 100% upgrade for treatment plus six months. I submitted the paperwork two weeks ago, and was wondering when I will likely hear from the VA.

Active duty Recently Diagnosed with neck cancer. Any others that served in Mosul or Mazar e shrief

On 16 October I was diagnosed with neck cancer.  I had surgery on Monday to remove a tumor from the base of my tongue and my lymph nodes from the right side. Hopefully they will get it all out and that will be the end of it.  If not I will have to get radiation therapy or another surgery and maybe chemo. It has been a crazy two weeks getting prepared. And going through this. I got home two days ago. I have had a hard time posting about it. I am a non Tabacco user, not a heavy drinker and in good health. It came as a total surprise.

Shipyards, Cancer & the VA

I spent several years stationed and living at my command at Bemerton naval shipyard. It was during the period when the where cutting up and decomming large numbers of SSN/SSBN's during the big draw down of the 90's

I was recently diagnosed with stage 4 RCC, had my right kidney removed but it has spread to my lungs.

I read that a major contributer to RCC can be due to heavy metals including lead and such.

I don't know but suspect that my time if there may have contributed to my condition, if not diectly, possibly aggravating a predisposition to RCC.
