The one thing I harp on while advising a warrior who may be pending retirement or, the end of their military service contract, concerns the completeness and accuracy of their medical record. You two probably know as well as I do, "more" is definitely better. If there is any doubt IRT to a past, present or future medical concern, then there is no doubt. Don't walk out until it is documented in some way, shape or form. Once you are into the VA health system and if a issue was not documented prior, don't count on squat anytime soon for that particular issue.
I talk to most of them in nausea about the importance of insuring that their medical record has documented "everything", no matter how petty. How many times has the "tough guy syndrome" come back to screw you. Shot records; most of us took some pretty strange "stuff" and in my case, occasionally even the Doc/Corpsman wasn't entirely sure what it was.
Buck, if you have a "one stop shop" or a "single source document" link regarding access to a specific website link that you are using to educate yourself for the topics you presented above, it would make it easier for those who might be considering same. Knowledge is definitely power for this kind of effort.
Be safe and be well.
