60. It's apples to apples and I'll explain why.
I was medically misdiagnosed thru no fault of mine. It's a long, complex story which I won't go into here but while Dan Choi can publicly complain about paying back $2500.00, I couldn't. While the both of us wanted to remain in the service, he could openly fight his discharge. I couldn't and just had to accept what happened.

But life goes on and I look back at my time in the Navy as an overall positive experience. From the ship, I saw much of the world. I say "from the ship" as I sometimes didn't go on liberty for weeks and even months at a time because of my condition.
