Curious. Any vets on here have VA ever offer to pay you to examine you, take blood looking for specific genetic marker they think you may have?
VA hospital is 48 miles away and would rather not do it but they helped me so much on other issues that I want to be helpful. They offer 50.00 gift card each time they want me if I help them with their research. I don't even know what a genetic marker is but will read up on it.

Was stationed in Katterbach. Pulled border duty out of camp pitman from time to time which I think is mostly posted by 2nd ACR. but mostly choked on Graf dust and went to hoenfels and wildflecken from thime to time. Loved being in the field those were fun times.

They were trying to harvest DNA for the 1,000,000 Solider Program. Both veterans, my husband and I turned them down. They weren't giving anything away. This was during the time of Obama.

100% absolutely BS.

And by the way EVERYONE that entered service in the early 1990’s has their DNA preserved and on file.

Every veteran will remember the test kit you all did in basic training that sealed If I remember 3 samples in three separate containers in separate sealed bags sealed into bigger one.

Well maybe it's something like that then. The 50 dollars is nice but I would forgo it if the'd would let me be examined and blood test at the VA clinic here which is 1.6 miles from my house instead of driving so far. I'll go at least once because I'm so curious.

It is part of ALL OF US. It helps advance research in treatment and prevention of illnesses and treatment of various diseases vets suffer. You will also know what problems you are susceptible to.

Yes, true, but not ALL vets. Also, the genetic info is not possibly full inventory or they would not be promoting this. This is a big push.

I am a vet, and you are correct. When it was 1,000,000 Vet program I volunteered. They did not give anything. They had the specimen and notified me when it became All of Us. They called me back, did a survey, and gave me a debit card. They took my sample in 2015. They called me in on Oct 7 2022
