    Just found out today after having an MRI last week. So when did I injure it? Last March in Iraq. They could never diagnose it because there is no MRI in theater. Can you believe my unit was threatening me with malingering because I was on profile a few months ago? Some of my leadership also accused of lying about my knee. Fucking Army.

    No MRI in theater? Could have sworn there was on in Balad.

    I had something similar while on active duty. Had a few profiles and eventually a permanent one. My NCOIC accused me of faking it and didn't want me in the shop anymore (signal support).

    I took it up the chain of command and it got taken care of.

    I've noticed a lot of that (leadership pounding away at guys with legitimate injuries) in the active duty Army.
