    1) United States of America
    2) US Navy / VAW 115 (USS Independance, USS Kitty Hawk) VAW 112 (USS John C. Stennis)
    3) 1997 - 2002
    4) Yes, I am 100% service connected but my accident came 7 months after I returned state side.
    5) I am fast approaching 10 years in a chair as a disabled Vet and I have done tons of activities ranging from the Winter and Summer sports clinics to hand cycling with the local V.A. The V.A. is our life line to activities that some SCI's dont have access to and I am greatfull for everything they have done for me.

    I attend the Long Beach VA, I rehabbed there and even though the Loma Linda and San Diego VA's are closer I really like the therapists and facility in Long Beach. -Brian

    Loma Linda does not have a SCI Center (a "hub"). It is a "spoke" hospital with only a SCI outpatient clinic. Long Beach, San Diego and Palo Alto are the hub centers in CA.
