Collebo is a place that was envisioned while I was sitting in Afghanistan. Anyone
that has been deployed, knows how hard it may be to get a morale call, or to even

Veterans Medical Log - I've heard that if you want to get a fair rating from the Veteran's Administration you have to do two things. Visit your doctor regularly and provide accurate information about your medical condition.

Veteran's Log makes it easy to track your medical conditions. Just input the medical conditions you want to track on the“Conditions tab. Then tap the“Add Entry tab and tap a medical condition to add a log entry. Tap on the things that happened that day, then tap save. If an items does not apply to you personally, just don't tap it.  An example would be “Missed Work” if you were retired.
