US and Iran’s First Joint Military Venture Fighting al Qaeda in Iraq

| December 30, 2013

In case you were wondering when President Obama was going to make good on his campaign promise to disarm Iran and prevent them from getting nuclear weapons, this story on how he has, in fact, teamed up with Iran and is now funneling them weapons should answer that for you.

Turns out that in 2014, Iran is our military ally. Why is no one in the main stream media reporting on this?

DEBKA: With the Geneva Nuclear Accord still far from implementation a month after it was signed in Geneva, the United States and Iran are moving into stage two of their rapprochement: They are now fighting together to crush Al Qaeda terror in Iraq, DEBKAfile’s exclusive military sources report.

Iraq is two weeks into a major offensive for cutting al Qaeda down – the first major military challenge the jihadists have faced in the past six years. Three armies are fighting alongside Iraq: the United States, Iran’s Al Qods Brigades officers and Syria. Their mission is to foil Al Qaeda’s drive to spread its first independent state in the Middle East across the Iraqi-Syrian frontier. Its Iraqi and Syrian branches – ISIS and the Nusra Front – have declared a holy war to this end under their commanders Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi and Abu Mohammed al-Golani.

The Anbar province of Western Iraq is the scene of he fiercest combat close to Iraq’s borders with Syria and Jordan. To counter Al Qaeda’s superiority in speed and surprise, the US has sent the Iraqi army Hellfire surface-to-air missiles. They are already in use against al Qaeda camps on the Syrian border. Next, Washington is sending out small, long-endurance unmanned aerial ScanEagles. These drones are best suited to combat in Anbar’s deep wadis and the halophyte thickets lining the Euphrates River.

In this topsy-turvy scenario, Washington and Tehran share another surprising motive: to save the Assad regime in Damascus from Al Qaeda’s long arms. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov noted approvingly on Dec. 26: “Attitudes are changing in Western countries; they are becoming more realistic in their approach towards the Syrian crisis. The threat of terrorism in Syria, of jihadists coming to power, of creating a caliphate with extremist laws, these are the main problems.”

Since the Syrian chemical issue was addressed in September, Russian-Iranian-American collaboration is going strong. The joint US-Iranian war on al Qaeda is strengthening Tehran’s grip on Iraq as well Syria. It gives Russian President Vladimir Putin hope for keeping al Qaeda away from the Winter Olympics at Sochi – an ever-present menace as a female suicide bomber, a Dagestan national, demonstrated Sunday, Dec. 29, by blowing up the railway station at the southern Russian city of Volgograd, killing up to a score of people.

The other incentive for US President Barack Obama is the hope of transposing his collaboration with Tehran and Moscow to improve US chances of a reasonable accommodation in the Afghanistan arena. source – DEBKA

    What a laugh ! The U.S. Government assisting Iran in combating Al Qaeda When the U.S. Government created Al Qaeda . Talk about the U.S. Government being two faced . Vladimir Putin and Sergey Lavrov were right . The leadership of the U.S Government are liars .

      The enemy of my enemy is my friend, sound familiar ?

      Obama hates Israel, Iran hates Israel, Obama and Iran are now friends which means that Israel is left out in the cold and America will pay dearly for turning it’s back on Israel.

    If 2 years ago someone had mentioned an alliance between Russia, USA and Iran people would have called us nuts and crazy and now right before our eyes Bible prophecies are been fulfilled.

  4. watchman48 says:

    America is entering the last days of her very own existence… The true Christian will be taken up in the blink of an eye; the death of most of those remaining will come in the flash of a nuclear holocaust.
    I guess you can say, “What goes around, comes around!’ Or better yet. “That what you sow, so shall you reap!”

    Many times in the past has God the Father used the heathens to correct or discipline those He loves that they might turn from their wickedness and be saved.

    The Books of Enoch: Why was these books banned from the Bible? This Book was very popular to the 1st and 2nd Century Christians?

    • Teresa B says:

      hi, that’s way over my head for understanding, but found this, which u most likely know
      Enoch, Book of, History

      The Book of Enoch, also known as Ethiopic Enoch, I Enoch, and The Book of Henoch” was revered by the Jews and Christians alike but fell into disfavor among powerful theologians because of its controversial descriptions of the nature and deeds of the fallen angels. The Enochian writings like others such as The Books of Tobias, Esdras, and others, were omitted (or lost) from the Bible. Once it was considered to be among the biblical apocryphal writings by the early church fathers.

      To better understand the possible reason for the omission of the Book of Enoch from the Bible, the term “apocryphal” must be considered. Apocryphal is derived from the Greek and means “hidden” or “secret.” Originally it was a complimentary term, and when applied to sacred books it meant that their contents was considered too exalted to be made available to the general public. Gradually the idea was accepted that such books were only to be read by the wise. Therefore, the term “apocrypha” began taking on a negative meaning because the orthodoxy felt as if they were being kept in the dark by not being told the teachings of these books. The apocryphal books were just read among esoteric circles of the devout believers. The clergy that was not admitted into such circles because they were thought not to be enlightened soon banned apocryphal material heretical, which were forbidden for all to read.

      The Book of Enoch was banned as heretical by later Church fathers mainly because of its theme concerning the nature and actions of the fallen angels. In fact, the material infuriated some Church fathers. And, some rabbi even would not give credence to it. Probably it was considered such a sacrilege that it was denounced, cursed, banned, and no doubt burned and shredded. As a result the book was conveniently lost for a thousand years. But, with ironical persistence the Book of Enoch eventually reappeared.

      Although the Book of Enoch was banned, the reasons for doing so became more illusive after it was discovered once again. Rumors of a surviving copy of the book in 1773 sent the Scottish explorer James Bruce to distant Ethiopia in search of it. There he found the Ethiopic church has saved the book and kept it alongside of the other books of the Bible.

      Bruce was able to secure not one, but three copies of the Ethiopic book that he brought back to Europe and England. In 1821, Dr. Richard Laurence, an Oxford Hebrew professor, produced the first translation that gave the world its first glimpse of the forbidden Enochian mysteries.

      Speculation of most scholars place the original writing of the Book of Enoch during the second century B. C. with its popularity lasting at least five hundred years. The earliest Ethiopic text was apparently made from a Greek manuscript of the book, which itself was a copy of an earlier text. The original text appears to have been written in a Semitic language, now thought to be Aramaic.

    Off topic

    The “mystery illness” killing Bald Eagles, first reported here at Before It’s News on 12/25/13, in Utah and now we find out Idaho as well, isn’t as mysterious as first reported and now some experts with the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center believe the radiation from Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant could be responsible for the seizures, head tremors and paralysis that the majestic Bald Eagles are suffering from before dying.

    At first, the agency’s disease scientists guessed the illness could be encephalitis, which is caused by the West Nile virus, but later ruled out that possibility. […] Officials at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center have their own theories. Some point to radiation from Japan after the 2011 meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. […] A call from Idaho shed new light: A wildlife official said bald eagles there were also getting sick, suggesting the birds were arriving in Utah already in bad health.

    Between the health effects on wildlife from the air, sea life dying, acting strangely and becoming sick since the Fukushima plant is dumping hundreds of tons of radioactive water into the Pacific every single day since the 2011 disaster and meltdowns, it shouldn’t be all that difficult to comprehend how human beings are being affected and will continue to be affected for decades to come.

    In the video below they say the illness is still a mystery but looking to the examples of other wildlife and bird sicknesses and deaths associated with Fukushima, makes it pretty obvious that once again the media is not being honest.

  13. Teresa B says:

    Whenever I read comments by politicians defending the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Predator and Reaper program – aka drones – I wish I could ask them a few questions. I’d start with: “How many women and children have you seen incinerated by a Hellfire missile?” And: “How many men have you seen crawl across a field, trying to make it to the nearest compound for help while bleeding out from severed legs?” Or even more pointedly: “How many soldiers have you seen die on the side of a road in Afghanistan because our ever-so-accurate UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles] were unable to detect an IED [improvised explosive device] that awaited their convoy?”

    Few of these politicians who so brazenly proclaim the benefits of drones have a real clue of what actually goes on. I, on the other hand, have seen these awful sights first hand.

    I knew the names of some of the young soldiers I saw bleed to death on the side of a road. I watched dozens of military-aged males die in Afghanistan, in empty fields, along riversides, and some right outside the compound where their family was waiting for them to return home from the mosque.

    The US and British militaries insist that this is an expert program, but it’s curious that they feel the need to deliver faulty information, few or no statistics about civilian deaths and twisted technology reports on the capabilities of our UAVs. These specific incidents are not isolated, and the civilian casualty rate has not changed, despite what our defense representatives might like to tell us.

    What the public needs to understand is that the video provided by a drone is not usually clear enough to detect someone carrying a weapon, even on a crystal-clear day with limited cloud and perfect light. This makes it incredibly difficult for the best analysts to identify if someone has weapons for sure. One example comes to mind: “The feed is so pixelated, what if it’s a shovel, and not a weapon?” I felt this confusion constantly, as did my fellow UAV analysts. We always wonder if we killed the right people, if we endangered the wrong people, if we destroyed an innocent civilian’s life all because of a bad image or angle.

    It’s also important for the public to grasp that there are human beings operating and analysing intelligence these UAVs. I know because I was one of them, and nothing can prepare you for an almost daily routine of flying combat aerial surveillance missions over a war zone. UAV proponents claim that troops who do this kind of work are not affected by observing this combat because they are never directly in danger physically.

    But here’s the thing: I may not have been on the ground in Afghanistan, but I watched parts of the conflict in great detail on a screen for days on end. I know the feeling you experience when you see someone die. Horrifying barely covers it. And when you are exposed to it over and over again it becomes like a small video, embedded in your head, forever on repeat, causing psychological pain and suffering that many people will hopefully never experience. UAV troops are victim to not only the haunting memories of this work that they carry with them, but also the guilt of always being a little unsure of how accurate their confirmations of weapons or identification of hostile individuals were.

    Of course, we are trained to not experience these feelings, and we fight it, and become bitter. Some troops seek help in mental health clinics provided by the military, but we are limited on who we can talk to and where, because of the secrecy of our missions. I find it interesting that the suicide statistics in this career field aren’t reported, nor are the data on how many troops working in UAV positions are heavily medicated for depression, sleep disorders and anxiety.

    Recently, the Guardian ran a commentary by Britain’s secretary of state for defence, Philip Hammond. I wish I could talk to him about the two friends and colleagues I lost, within a year of leaving the military, to suicide. I am sure he has not been notified of that little bit of the secret UAV program, or he would surely take a closer look at the full scope of the program before defending it again.

    The UAVs in the Middle East are used as a weapon, not as protection, and as long as our public remains ignorant to this, this serious threat to the sanctity of human life – at home and abroad – will continue.

    4 years and counting to retire from the USAF will not come soon enough. This military is lost and run by godless heathens and generals/admirals with no backbone. There is one immutable saying that I and my brothers and sisters in arms can take from this, “We the willing led by the unknowing are doing the impossible; for the very ungrateful, we have done so much with so little for so long, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing for nothing?”

  17. STL says:

    John Jr. As you have your Freedom of Speech, if your told not to use the “name of Jesus,” in open prayer in the USAF, and you go ahead anyways, can the USAF court-martial you?

    • STL says:

      John Jr: Reason I asked their rumors that USAF Chaplains can not end prayers in “Jesus Name.”

      • John Jr. says:

        Technically if I was given a direct order not to use the name Jesus, yes I could be court martialed. It would be extreme as various other forms of punitive actions would come first. It is working its way in the military chaplaincy to curtail their speech. I will never obey such an order and I continue to witness when the opportunity arises. I still have my Bible and other Christian paraphernalia on my desk. There are more of us in the military than you think, Evangelical Christians. I speak openly with my Commander and just had a good conversation about my master’s degree in theology at Liberty U’s Baptist Seminary with my Deputy-Commander and worked in my dedication to Jesus as well. It will take some time to weed out all the Christians but that is the goal of this administration.

        • Teresa B says:

          I am just so mad John Jr, to actually hear this from one I have conversed with. Its different than reading it somewhere else. I am just so mad

        • STL says:

          JOHN JR: I’M REALLY SORRY YOU HAVE TO ENDURED THAT TYPE OF HARASSMENT IN YOUR CAREER IN THE MILITARY. IT WAS ALOT DIFFERENT WHEN I SERVED IN THE VIETNAM WAR, CAPLAINS SPOKE HIGHLY ABOUT JESUS CHRIST IN THEIR SERMONS ON SUNDAY SERVICE, EVEN BEING IN A COMBAT ZONE.
          I UNDERSTAND OBAMA JUST TOOK 1% OF THE MILITARY RETIREMENT IF YOUR UNDER 62 YEARS OLD, BY THE TIME YOUR RETIREMENT COME IN NEXT 4 YEARS, WHAT WOULD BE THE PERCENTAGE?

          I RECIEVE 100% SERVICE CONNECTION DISABILITY FROM A MORTARS BLAST TO BOTH KNEES AT THE BATTLE OF FIREBASE RIPCORD, RVN AND I RECIEVE SPECIAL COMPENSATION BEING HOUSEBOUND AND MY SSA RETIREMENT CHECK.

          BUT IT TOOK ME 42 YEARS TO RECIEVE MY BENEFITS. THE VETERANS AFFAIRS IS A WHOLE NEW BALL GAME THAN THE MILITARY AND I COLLECTED MY BACK PAY JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO IN A APPEAL BACK TO 1/12/1971.

          HOW THINGS ARE GOING MAYBE YOU’LL NEVER SEE YOUR RETIREMENT IF THE USA GOES INTO ANOTHER FINANCIAL CRISIS? BUT MAYBE THE LORD WILL BE HERE FOR US?

          • John Jr. says:

            My actual retirement pay stays the same, it’s the COLA that was cut in retirement. I will also get disability. I won’t have any lag in pay, I have already been MEB’d so it’s part of my package now. I’m 43 so I’ll have a few years to wait.

          • STL says:

            John Jr. stay on top of VA their A^^holes, there not on our side, as I just love how they say, we” Honor and Respect” our veterans. Because if things are not just correct with your disability, it take over 320 days on appeal to recieve your benefits, then that if you do get remanded, then it take substantive appeal and another 320 days to get your answer from them. VA says, it only takes 125 days, but that political BS!

          • STL says:

            John Jr. I went through 10 Rating Decision Denials before VA granted my benefits. Its a long hard battle with VA, but I learned all the short cuts to take that 320 days to 150 days to processed an appeal.

          • STL says:

            John Jr: Maybe you know this information already:

            N.P.R.C. St. Louis, Mo. has all your Personnel and Medical Records.

            National Archives Records Administration in Balimore, has all your unit records, if in combat duty, those are there too.

            Then VAMC records are at your local VAMC Records Office.

            I handled my own claims, but you should already hire a lawyer before you get out of the military. Please do not trust the DSO’s at American Legion, VFW, because their not your buddies, there buddies are the VA employees.

          • John Jr. says:

            That really may be a good idea about the attorney. I’ve had 4 surgeries on my feet so I will be limited to what I will be able to do in the civilian world. I will keep that in mind if I see my disability start to go sour.

          • John Jr. says:

            I’m not sure how your disability is but it goes by % now. 10%, 30%, 50% and so on with or without children. Anything under 30% and you loose benefits. I will accept nothing less that 50 as I know people that have gotten more with less hurts than I have. Even the VA site has a link to attorneys, sad. Check this out.

          • STL says:

            JOHN JR: I’M 100% SERVICE CONNECTED WITH SPECIAL COMPENSATION BEING HOUSEBOUND.

            I’LL CAPPED OFF MY PERCENTAGES:

            70% PTSD
            10% RT. HAND
            20% RT. KNEE
            10% LT. KNEE
            THAT SHOULD BE 110%, BUT VA RATES ME 90%, SO I GOT UNEMPLOYABLITY SO THAT TOOK ME TO 100%, THEN HOUSEBOUND BENEFITS WHICH IS SPECIAL COMPENSATION.

            VA SAYS, WE ARE HERE TO HONOR AND RESPECT OUR VETERANS, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE WE ARE ON WELFARE BEGGING FOR OUR BENEFITS THAT WE GAVE OUR BLOOD AND SWEAT FOR THOSE BENEFITS.

  18. STL says:

    TERESA B: YOU SAID YOUR HUSBAND RETIRED FROM THE MILITARY?

    DO YOU KNOW OBAMA TOOK 1% DEDUCTION FROM THE MILITARY RETIREMENT PAY OF ANYONE UNDER 62 YEARS OF AGE!

  19. STL says:

    JOHN JR: THE ONLY WAY THIS OBAMA ADIMINSTARTATION WILL WEED OUT THE CHRISTIANS FROM THE MILITARY, IF JESUS COMES FOR HIS BELIEVERS!

  20. STL says:

    Teresa B: Most of the veterans, which are about 5,000 military retirement are over 62 years old. We have General Clark here, he’s a 3 star General, he lives about 1/4 mile from my house here in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico.

  21. STL says:

    TERESA B: IF YOU KNOW OF ANY 100% SERVICE CONNECTED VETERANS, THEIR DEPENDENTS CAN RECIEVE FREE MEDICAL CARE THROUGH VA, ITS CALLED CHAMPVA. AND ANY SERVICE CONNECTED VETERANS NOT LIVING IN THE USA, GET FMP MEDICAL , BUT YOU PAY UPFRONT, THEN WITHIN 45 DAYS AFTER SUBMIT THE PAID MEDICAL BILLS, YOU RECIEVE YOUR PAYMENT.

  22. STL says:

    JOHN JR. AFTER SERVICE, WHEN YOU APPLY FOR VA DISABILITY, VA WILL GO SOUR ON YOU! REMEMBER THIS LET SAY YOUR FOOT IS 5O% DISABILITY, VA WILL ONLY ALLOW THE FIRST TIME 10% DISABILITY, THEN APPEAL THAT DECISION WHICH THEN YOU’LL RECIEVE 20% DISABILITY, THAT HIGHEST YOU WILL RECIEVE ON THAT FOOT. TO GET A HIGHER PERCENTAGE YOU NEED MORE THAN ONE INJURY. AS ME I HAVE 5 DIFFERENT PART OF MY BODY, PLUS I HAD TO PROVE UNEMPLOYABILTY BEFORE I RECIEVE MY 100% SERVICE CONNECTION.

    I HAVE INSIDE SOURCE IN CENTRAL VA IN WASHINGTON, D.C. IN 2014 OBAMA WILL GET NON-SERVICE CONNECTIONS PENSIONS DONE AWAY WITH.

    PLUS I RECIEVE 100% SSA DISABILITY AND SINCE I’M 64, I RECIEVE MY SSA RETIREMENT ALSO.

    SO MY 100% VA SERVICE CONNECTION IS $ 3, 359.00; SSA DISABILITY $ 806.00; SSA RETIREMENT $ 1, 269.00= $ 5,434.00 PER MONTH. THEN SINCE I LIVE IN MEXICO, THE PESOS EXCHANGE IS MORE EACH MONTH= $ 1,587.00. SO MY TOTAL MONTHLY PAYMENT IS =$ 7,021.00 MONTHLY PAYMENT IN US DOLLARS.

    MY TAXES ON MY 5 BEDROOM HOUSE, 2 CAR CARPORT, 3 BATHROOMS, POOL, HOT TUB IS $ 300.00 PER YEAR IN DOLLARS. WE ONLY SPEND PER MONTH ABOUT $ 500.00 DOLLARS WE EAT STEAK ALMOST EVERY NIGHT, MOST PEOPLE HERE PAY ABOUT $ 300.00 DOLLARS FOR A/C 24 HOURS PER DAY, WATER BILL IS $ 10.00 DOLLARS PER MONTH,.

    BUT I HAVE SOLAR PANELS FOR ELECTRIC, SO I’M OFF THE GRID, WE HAVE ABOUT 320 DAYS OF SUNLIGHT. I HAVE 5 ACRES LOT, I LIVE RIGHT NEXT TO THE OCEAN, WHERE I DOCK MY 38 FOOT SAILBOAT.

    WHEN BUILDING A HOUSE MATERIAL IS THE SAME PRICE AS THE USA, BUT THE LABOR IS VERY CHEAP. CONSTRUCTION ON MY 5 BEDROOM WAS ONLY $ 20,000.00 DOLLARS.

    I WAS BORN IN MEXICO, BUT GREW UP IN PORTLAND, OREGON, WHICH I’M NATURALIZED. REASON I CAME BACK TO MEXICO, IT CHEAPER TO LIVE HERE.

    • John Jr. says:

      You seem to have a good set up. I have more than my feet, I have a bad hip that I had surgery on so I plan on a good % for disability. I will still work after retirement but I will choose a place where the cost of living is low and I would love to live off the grid as well. I have a plan for my home but I want to as self sufficient as possible.

  23. STL says:

    JOHN JR: I LOVE MY COUNTRY THAT I WENT TO WAR FOR IN VIETNAM, WHICH I DID 4 TOURS THERE. BUT I NEEDED TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER COUNTRY THAT WAS CHEAPER. SO I INVESTIGATED AND LEARNED FROM MILITARY RETIREES, THAT MAZATLAN, MEXICO WAS GOOD. WE HAVE A AMERICAN LEGION AND VFW POST’S HERE. WE HAVE SAM’S CLUB, WAL-MART, SEARS, MCDONALDS, PIZZA HUT, WENDYS, HOME DEPOT. MEDICAL: SHARP HOSPITAL (AMERICAN) AND WE HAVE FORIEGN MEDICAL PROGRAM OUTPATIENT CLINIC UNDER THE VA.

    WE HAVE MILITARY RETIREES AND DISABLE VETERANS HERE ABOUT 5,000 AND ITS GROWING BY 100 PER MONTH. MAZATLAN IS EXPANDING NORTHWARD, FOR THESE MILITARY RETIREES AND FAMILIES.

  24. STL says:

    JOHN JR. WHEN YOUR READY TO TAKE A TRIP SOUTH, I’LL TAKE YOU TO OTHER MILITARY RETIREES. I’M THE DEPARTMENT SERVICE OFFICER HERE, TO GET EVERYONE’S THEIR BENEFITS. NEXT MONTH, 10 VETS AND ME ARE GOING UP TO VA SAN DIEGO FOR THEIR VA HEARINGS. USUALLY IT TAKES MOST VETS UP TO 9 MONTHS TO GET A HEARING, BUT I FOUND A WAY TO CUT RED TAPE AND GET THAT HEARING IN 90 DAYS. NOT ONE OF THE CLAIMS I DEFEND, EVER GETS REMANDED, THEIR ALWAYS GRANTED. VA JUST HATES ME, AS I’M SO OPINIONATED VET. I PAY MY OWN TRAVEL OUT OF MY POCKET, ITS MY WAY GIVING TO OTHER VETERANS. I DOT EVERY I, AND CROSS EVERY T, AND I HAVE INSIDE SOURCE AT THE PAY CENTER IN TEXAS, TO GET THOSE BENEFITS TO THESE DISABLE VETERANS WITHIN 15 DAYS.

    AFTER SPENDING 40 YEARS IN 10 RATING DECISION DENIALS, I LEARNED ALOT HOW TO PROCESSED MY CLAIMS, I ONLY TRUSTED MYSELF, DEFENDING MY CLAIMS AGAINST VA.

    I WENT TO MY BVA HEARING IN D.C., THEY TOLD ME I NEEDED PROVE I SERVED IN COMBAT, AND I NEEDED MY UNIT RECORDS. SO I HANDED 2100 PAGES OF MY UNIT RECORDS TO THEM, THERE RESPONSE WAS, WHERE DID YOU FIND THEM, VA WILL NOT TELL YOU WHERE THESE RECORDS ARE. SO 30 DAYS LATER, I RECIEVED BACK PAY BACK TO 1/12/1971 AT 100% AND SPECIAL COMPENSATION.

    • John Jr. says:

      Thanks man. I think we will retire in the VA, KY, or TN area. I have investigated those states and they are still the most gun friendly and conservative, plus the hunting is good. I want to use my degrees in Religion and Theology and work for a creation ministry but I will fall back on my USAF logistics training and my TS clearance to get a job if I have to. I’ll keep ya in mind though if we’re still here in 4 years, Lord willing He’ll come for His bride and take us home soon.

  25. STL says:

    JOHN JR: WHEN YOU GET TO YOUR LAST YEAR IN THE MILITARY, START SPENDING ALOT OF TIME, SEEING DOCTORS FOR YOUR FOOT AND YOUR HIP, YOU NEED TO PROVE ALOT OF PAIN, AND IT NEEDS TO BE DOCUMENTED.

    QUESTION DID ANY OF YOUR UNIT’S SERVED IN COMBAT? YOU DO NOT NEED TO PROVE YOU CAME IN CONTACT WITH ENGAGEMENT, JUST YOUR UNIT?

    IF SO, THEN START SEEING A PTSD COUNSELOR, THAT WAY YOU CAN GET 50% PTSD.

    WE HAVE ONE MASTER SGT. HERE GET 30 YEARS OF RETIREMENT, 100% SERVICE CONNECTION, SSA RETIEMENT.

      I have only been to Qatar and I don’t think it was considered hazardous duty. But yeah I heard that when you go see the Dr. it should be on a bad day for pain so they know what trouble your in. I have no PTSD and won’t be deploying ever again. Mainly now because of my profile and my job.
