My name is Don Barr. I was stationed in CES from 1986-1989. My first wife lost a set of twins and almost died in the process. She got pregnant again, and we had a daughter with gastroschisis. Her intestines, liver, and part of her stomach were on the outside. While at Lackland getting fixed… we saw our old neighbors whose daughter LaShawn V. , 16 years old was dying from cancer. She had babysat for us the year before was healthy so quite a shock. LaShawn died, my daughter lived but wasn’t supposed to. I have insomnia and degenerative disc disease. VA says this is normal aging… I’m 53….had a desk job for years. Also, have cataracts in both eyes severe.
I am not a doctor or attorney, and cannot give medical advice or legal advice.
