I wanted to stay in the military, but the AF said I could not deploy, even though I was a Sensor Operator on Reaper (UAV), did not deploy. I am a Chapter 61 veteran, rated at 100%, but cannot draw my retirement that I worked for 17.5 yrs for, and wanted to finish out my 20 yrs, but because the AF completely tore my body up. Then I am thrown away and said so sorry Charlie..
