in 1990 right before retirement i was sent to wilford hall medical center at lackland air force base, texas and tested for sleep apnea in the sleep lab. i did the first night without cpap but didn't have time to have the titration study with the cpap before my approved retirement date. the next appointment was a month or two later and it would have fallen after retirement. as you know, once you get a retirement date approved, they can change it but you can't. so the military was testing, diagnosing and treating sleep apnea as far back as 1990.
