    I started working at Utilities Division of Base Maint. At CLNC Aug 6 1962 and retired on Dec. 31, 2003. A cancerous kidney was removed in October, 2009, I received chemo treatment in early 2010 for bladder cancer. Do I qualify for any rewards that may be issued to civilian employees of CLNN. Thanks for your assistance.
