Atten-Hut

Post by Jimbob »

The UOAA has established a Veterans Outreach Network.

As Part of this Network it was decided that a Discussion Forum would be a valuable resource.

A place where all Veterans, whether Active Duty, Discharged, Retired, Reserves, or just plain proud to have served can come together to discuss issues of common interest. Maybe you have a question regarding your ostomy Care, or a Service related ostomy Health Issue, Or just want to tell a Sea Story. This is the place

If you are a Veteran and viewing this forum we ask that you spread the word that it exists. We also encourage you to be active in your Local UOAA affiliated Support Group. If you are not a member we encourage you to join. If you have no local Support group we encourage you to start one.

As a starter we are providing a link to the VA website.

Dagnabit!

I thought that once I mustered out of the Navy I would not have to turn to attention, again. Just proves what we have all come to learn: Once in always in.

Aye, Aye, Sir!

ostomy can present an identity crisis of image and function, and require tradeoffs.
