    I served onboard the Uss Ticondroga CVA14 from April 1964 - May 1966. I was a BT in fireroom 1. I am presently filing a claim at the VA because I have asbestos in my lung. I need to know if anyone has ever filed for disability benefits from the va with something similar. I also need to know if anyone has filed for a hearing loss or ringing of the ears. These thiings were caused by the extreme noise and the exposure to asbestos in the firerooms. Maybe you have the same thing as me . I would greatly appreciate anybody's help. I remember launching aircraft and throwing down those burners in the saturated side and the superheated sid of the boiler and keeping that steam pressure at 600psi without lifting safeties. We were some bad mother haunchers and w e didn't even know it. To all the BTS of the world who know the feeling keep on steaming brothers!!!!We were there in the Gulf Of Tonkin and were online 63 days. Maddox and Turner Joy were our escorts. Hats of to all you salts!!!

    I was stationed at Bainbridge Md, for boot Camp, from August 63 to November 63, I then went remained at Bainbridge working in the Personnel Office evaluating Officers Records. I married while in and got pregnant and had to be discharged, which was wrong because they did not go by the Navy rules, it was a job and was suppose to be treated as such, work until delivery and then 6 weeks pregnancy leave and then go back to work. They also did me wrong, because In the end of bootcamp I started having back pains and my feet going numb, the doctors in sick call said it was nothing, so even after I got discharged, went to see a private doctor, he said the same thing, went so long with no treatment that when they finally did operate, the dissc just crumbled into pieces, wound up with a disable disease for the rest of my life. I live from day to day with nothing but pain. But is n't it strange how all my documents from sick call disappeared, so I can file for service connected. but while I was in, I loved it, was a boot camp petty officer and excelled in education. I am just sorry that I made the mistake in getting married and getting pregnant, or I would have made a career our of it. I really did love it. Navygirl Kat
