of veterans diagnosed with Hep C blame their diagnosis on jet injectors and their
unsanitary conditions from person to person.

At my recent annual physical my doctor mentioned hepatitis c was
appearing in my age group and asked if I'd ever had a transfusion, had
been exposed to blood, or had been a caregiver. She didn't memtion the Jets.
