I have a question about a story on the WatchDog. It is entitled "Veterans urged to file discharge papers locally" , by Keith Strange.

I have also written him for clarification.

When I was discharged in '70, we were also advised to do the same.

This was before the advent of identity theft.

Dear Jim,

I look at your page every day. I thank you for the service you provide not just to me but to all the veterans out there. I am sure you will respond to this letter way before the VA respond to my claim.
