Veteran to Veteran

Trying to find any other Veterans who have Crohn's disease, and had their symptoms start ot manifest overseas. I found myself getting ziploc baggies of Docusate Sodium pills or immodium while stationed overseas. Wondering if anyone else ran into this same level of informality at the Medical Tent, resulting in a lack of a paper trail for symptoms.
