I served in river division 153, river squadron 15, Monitor-6 from 6/70-11/70 and then in Rid 47 as an adviser, 1/71-6/71. And the USS Colleton 3/69-6/69. Guys I have recently been diagnosed with something called Lupus. Since it is not one of 17 approved agent orange diseases associated with the brown water navy I am wondering if anyone else has been diagnosed with it? I am headed to the local VA Fort for the rubber glove exam next week to look into my rising PSA number's. Lupus has given me a "extensive" blood clot in my left leg and I have a wonderful civilian doctor/hematologist who found the disease and is treating it. We are very lucky this doctor lives here in Helena, Montana. So if anyone knows of other's with this auto immune disease that is not common in males, I would be interested in hearing from you. Thanks, Dave M.
