  • USMC heart, USMC knee!
    I joined the Marine Corps at age 18, in perfect all-around health. But 7 years of hiking with 80 lbs. on my back, running, jumping, swimming, and a variety of other exotic activities took a toll on my left knee. The first time I was diagnosed with PFS was during my 4th year when I fell out of a seemingly easy formation run, whereas before I had been one of the fastest and strongest runners in my platoon (3 miles in under 18 minutes!) After that my knee slowly deteriorated. Once I left active duty, I submitted a claim to the VA and was classified with a service-connected disability of PFS.
