FAA Scrubbing Pilots with Unreported VA Disability Conditions....

This recent comment from Danger41 in a thread about veteran pilots playing fast and loose with the VA disability system, makes me wonder if memory loss isn't one of those conditions the FAA is looking into.  Memory loss and bouts of pure stupidity are definitely a danger for one.  Sadly, when demonstrated by a "public servant" like this war hero, it's a danger for all.

Selective memory is popular these days and, like so many VA disability claims, is often the result of will more than it is actual disability.  For example, one might selectively forget how Dan Tarleton outed my identity.  They might then choose to forget how I responded in kind.  Proportionality is a tough concept to remember with all those diversity CBTs clogging your cranium though.

Fortunately I blogged about it.
  That was nearly a decade ago though.  Hard to remember for some.  But I've had several memory joggers through the years to assist my recollection.
