Walter Reed testimony

CSPAN is covering some testimony from Walter Reed Army Hospital. It's absolutely gut wrenching.

A young Scout just spoke about his two tours in Iraq and being wounded. He spoke of lots of out of pocket expenses, being sent back to Iraq when he was injured and other abuses at the hospital.

More and more soldiers are speaking out about the Ward 54 at the hospial. Ward 54 is the psychatric ward at the hospital, more and more soldiers are speaking out about the care and over-medication of persons here.

The testimony just tugs at my heart...

I was once almost sent there when I was in the Peace Corps. Instead they sent me to a private PT. Scary scary
