    RJP Welcome to CC & sorry to hear about your accident. Are you still employed by the PD? Also very sorry to hear about your nephew. Please let him know about his site & that there will soon be a Veterans Forum here on Care Cure & the moderator will be a former Paralyzed Veterans of America Service Officer who I believe is also a paralyzed Veteran himself.

    Welcome 6gun from another Tennessean. If you need any information on programs, etc. in TN send a PM.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    Why did you get rehab at Shepherd? and do you see the different between the VA and Shepherd?

    Tim's mom
    I was at a point where I thought I had gone as far as I was going to go with rehab with the VA and I had nothing to lose by checking out the Shepherd Center. I had heard may good things about their program there. With all things being equal, it was closer to home and my kids than the Tampa VA.

    I did not notice any differences in their medical care nor their physical therapy. The big difference I noticed between the two was in the Shepherd Center's OT and RT programs. IMO the Shepherd Center was a bit better in those areas. More funding and personnel really.

    Also, I didn't know what I didn't know and decided to give them a shot. No regrets and I met some really cool people there.

Well hey, good to see you here, use the search engine for most any imaginable question, great info here. And don't hesitate to ask questions, of course. Watch for the coming Veterans forum.
    No Quadvet, I flew an AH-6M which is a modernized and armed version of the OH-6 Cayuse (Loach) used back in the Viet Nam era. Our AH-6s are used to support our Special Operations folks around the globe nowadays. Flying them was the best job in the Army and I truely miss doing it. We all stop flying eventually, but I always thought it would be much later.

    OK, I've seen these, neat little birds, impressive firepower for its size. Sounds like a great job. CareCure member Van Damn flew A-10's back in the day, surprised he hasn't seen you here yet and said howdy. Can't say I enjoy flight, sure can understand your feeling of loss tho. Well hey, I hope you look into flying again, sans guns of course. Keep up the hard work, hard to tell at this point where your recovery will end.
