had mine busted to fk on exercise after multiple surgeries the knee cap was removed but the other damage was  non repairable to the joint and muscle etc,
Pain the same, ive been shot and been in life and death situations multible times, i imagine the combat environment is alot more intense that's about it other then the combat veteran gets the golden ticket in medical insurance while traveling out of country!
Never served in combat myself and give the utmost respect for those who have👍
there you go, l wonder why VAC feels the need to identify that an injury happened in A Special Duty Area, especially if both vets are awarded the same %.?
Respect they earned it. I will give them that and more if i could, violent injures caused by enemy fire deserves the highest respect imo
