Legal Question in Military Law in Washington

I joined the U.S. Navy in 1980 and retired, honorably, in 1998. I recently found out (12/2012) that I have only one kidney (disqualifying for entry into Military service). Should I seek any recourse or compensation for this? How should I do it?

Unless you suffered a service related injury/disability somehow related to the kidney issue, I do not know of anything you can get. You did not lose a kidney as a result of your service. I assume that the lack of a kidney has not kept you from engaging in any specific activity.
