    I am glad I have both VA and Tricare. I have tried to get care in West Michigan a few times just to be told that the medical facility or doctor's office does not accept Tricare anymore. I was told it was because Tricare does not pay enough and that they do not require the veteran to pay more of a co-pay. Talk about a shock.
  2. I believe memory is tied into having hair any color besides white and gray. I also think it is tied into the amount of hair. Once you hair color goes, or the hair, and has become white and/or gray then the memory goes with it. Kinda like it was a storage for memory...LOL
  3. Thank you Kirk for the reply. I too thought that there was a BOF for the military and veterans at one time. Lockie does not recall one actually have been setup as a BOF, C-BOF, or chapter. I will send you a PM. Best regards, Richard "Doc"
  4. Hello everyone. I have received the formal approval of the board in regards to the BOF - Military & Veterans. Escapees BOF - Military & Veterans is now an official BOF. As this a BOF and not a chapter, there is no requirement for elected leadership, By-Laws, various reports, etc. However, the BOF must abide by Escapees Directives and submit a membership roster annually. Here is a brief description of the BOF: The purpose of this BOF is to provide military, veterans, and Gold Star families the opportunity to continue with food, fun, fellowship, and camping/RVing with others that have or still are serving, in the United States and Canadian Armed Forces.MEMBERSHIP CRITERIA1. Active member in good standing with Escapees.2.
