Walter Reed Veterans Get Shafted

Deplorable conditions
mold, rats, red tape, booze, neglect,
The forgotten Veterans from an Administration that could care less
Shafted at Walter Reed - Our Iraq Veterans
Chux Mind at Walter Reed Hospital
Chux Mind at Walter Reed Hospital
I have compiled about three main links on the deplorable conditions at Walter Reed Hospital
These Veterans are shafted and forgotten. This is totally uncalled for.

I will be writing my congressman by the end of this day for sure!

Broken Promises - out of pocket expenses - building is a hell hole that should be closed
Nobody is doing crap about this.
I read where it took the Washington Post 4 months just to get their story out
So this is how the Neocons treat their warrior's when they are used up?

Support the troops? Read this and tell me how in the hell the US government is giving any support
They are on their own. Broken, crippled, and abused, mentally and physically

Hard to Believe #989894645 23.Feb.2007 09:33

citizen of Rodentia

Hard to believe that 20 years after "Born on the Fourth of July" won Oscars, this unforgivable situation is still going strong. It's just another manifestation of this administration's utter disregard for "Those Brave Men and Women", as our President is so fond of saying. First it's unarmored Humvees being used for transports, fodder for IED's. Then it's a lack of personal armor. Buy your own! they were told by Uncle Sam. And if you join the hallowed ranks of those who REALLY gave for their country, those esteemed "Heroes" we have plastered in every magazine and TV show, you'll get the shit-end of the stick as your reward. Rats. CAN YOU BELIEVE THERE'S FREAKING R-A-T-S IN THE WARDS STILL? What can you expect from a military that still tortures prisoners to death in foreign hell-holes. Think thet care one iota about human life in general? This says it all about BushCo's war machine. U.S. soldiers are nothing more than fodder, suckers for Halliburton & Co. That's what these troglodytes believe.
