Ben Hospitalized for Six Days
Ben has been released in good health from Tripler Military Hospital in Hawaii. He had a shortness of breath and after a little change in medication, he is as good as new. He says that it was so bad at times, he thought he had "bought the farm." He was forced to miss his appearance at the Monster-Mania Convention in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
Ben wishes to thank his doctors for their care. One of his doctors, Michael Illovsky, was a Commander in the U.S. Navy. His other doctor was Dr. Domanski. Ben wants to point out that this hospital does not have the problems that Walter Reed Hospital has on the mainland. Some of the hospital employees even asked him for his autograph.
