I would suggest to any military person that went through the gauntlet of jet injection for immunization should be checked for Hep-C.
Good advice !
I'm from that era, have Hep-C, no transfusions, just dental and the gauntlet while I was in, always wondered it wasn't related, even at the time it seemed like a great way to spread blood borne diseases.
I go to a VA hospital for some things and was having some routine blood work back in April. The doctor told me that the VA was recommending that vets be checked for Hepatitis and did I mind being tested. I thought it was really odd, but didn't object and all tests came back negative.
This and some other stories of problems at VA and other hospitals make those Hepatitis tests seem more understandable.
