Hotel California Walter Reed Hospital


Our fellow citizens who made the fatal mistake of signing up for the military got stuck in Iraq. Many actually live through the experience. Others sustain injuries. Where do they end up? In maze of bureaucracy brought to you by our own Veteran's Administration.

Suffering a work related injury is very challenging under the best of circumstances. The process is simple. File a claim, its verified, benefits are paid. These soldiers sustained work related injuries. For catastrophic injuries we assign a field nurse to guide the injured and their family through the process. Why can't they assign a nurse or an administrator who could ease the process?

We could use less rhetoric and more action from this administration. Just when I think these bastards have reached an all time low, I read the news.
