My Name is Arthur Lewis Jr. I served in Korat, Thailand in the 388th MMS Sq. from March 1973-September 1975. During that time I was often ordered to SP Augmentee duty. I was posted at several towers and bunkers around the base. From the towers, I could see many bare/brown areas very near the perimeter areas I was responsible for guarding. I noticed that they never needed to be attended to by the grass cutter details that were contracted to the base. I also noticed a bunch of barrels of stuff located at the O-6 end of the runway (I think this was the right designator. I couldn't swear to what was in them). I had a six month break in service, then I enlisted in the Army. I now have type II Diabetes diagnosed in October 2005). I was told, during a PRP physical (At this time I was in the Army in Germany) that I was borderline diabetic and hypertensive. I now know (Having looked back at my medical records) that I had diabetes and high blood pressure when I was 25 years old and was not treated for it. I would appreciate any help you can render to me. Thank you for your time, and may God bless all of you guys-ladies.
