    How good are they?

    I got less than 2 months...close to a month now left in the army. My back is all jacked up from heavy lifting (not from hitting the gym), and I wanted to know if my back is really messed up to the point to where they have to do surgery or give me medical benifts, or whatever. Would they have to keep me in longer than my actual ETS date? Lets say its because they need to do more checkups or more paperwork?

    You really need to go see a military doctor before your ETS. You need to get your problem documented if you want to have any chance of benefits.

    By the way, is/are everyones PAs (in the army) really really a piece of shit? Ours if very useless and lazy. If we were to walk in with a broken arm/leg and the bone was visibly broken, our PA would say something like, "What? You got a run or something tomorrow? Theres nothing wrong you. Here, take 800mg of motrin and come back if it gets worse"

    If my reading comprehension is good, then this means, that you have a great PA.

    FUCK NO!

    We (sorta) recently had a bad accident over there. Some lady gave birth and the docs at tripler gave the baby CO2 instead of O2. O2 = Green bottle.

    How fucking sad is that.
