Oops, the scheduler didn’t… Sorry…
General Dunford has turned over the mantle of CJCS, and moves into retirement.
This is his farewell message.
General Mark Milley replaced him yesterday. General Milley is a former Green Beret, and I believe that is a first. His official bio is HERE. Like General Dunford, he is a combat veteran, and has led from the front. It will be interesting to watch as he takes the reins.
In other news, I got a letter from the VA about sharing my health information without my consent under certain circumstances.
The weblink is HERE.
And there is an interesting note at the bottom worth reading…
Notice to Veterans: The VA Health Information Exchange Opt Out Form, VA Form 10-10164, is now available online at www.va.gov, on this website, or in Release of Information Office (ROI) at VA medical centers. The form must be signed, mailed and/or hand carried to a Veteran’s local Release of Information Office. VA Form 10-0484 will expire September 30, 2019 and the new form VA 10-10164, will need to be submitted. Currently, there are no means of submitting the form electronically.
VA Systems will begin opting all Veterans into health information sharing, beginning January 2020.
It is incumbent on you, as veterans, to make your own decisions on whether or not to allow your health information to be shared. What you decide is YOUR business, not mine or anyone else’s other than your spouse (for worst case scenarios).
