and I think I have a freaking ear infection. its starting to get really painful. I have no idea how the military health insurance or whatever system works. where do I go??? I believe the nearest va hospital is like 60 miles away in Houston. Do I go to any clinic that takes tricare? or is that just family members/dependants. basicly when I call up a bunch of local clinics tomorrow, what do I ask them in terms of treating active duty military? I.e., treating me and then billing the government with no expense to me. halp.
