Looking at the SF-93, would not that the revision data
is 1989, which is after I was no longer involved with
the review of medical records. Remembering back more
than 20 years, I believe that the old SF-93 did have a
section for family history of cancer, leukemia,
Nevertheless, there are three blank lines on the front
page. As noted in Section 2-5.(1)(a) "Use of an
overprint or rubber stamp on the SF-93 for the
supplemental history questions is acceptable. . . "
Both the SF-88 and SF-93 are standard forms which
could be augmented for specific types of exams, e.g,
submarine duty, aviaiton, or radiation. I think those
were the only "special" programs.
