Posted on 05/25/2014 8:01:43 PM PDT by Whenifhow
The bodies of at least 28 veterans were found this past week at the LA Coroners office. The bodies had never been buried.
CBS Local reported:
The bodies of 28 veterans at the L.A. County Morgue were finally moved Friday for burial to the Riverside National Cemetery.
CBS2/KCAL9 pressed the L.A. County Coroners Office Thursday to find out why the bodies had not yet received a proper burial after a source indicated there may have been as many as 60 veterans at the morgue for the past year and a half.
The morgue says the bodies were unclaimed and they dont know how long the veterans were there.
The law states veterans are supposed to receive a proper burial.
The Veterans Administration says they were never notified the bodies were processed and ready to be buried.
More than two dozen bodies were transported to the Riverside National Cemetery Friday afternoon and more could be moved as they are identified.
On Friday evening, KCAL9′s Stacey Butler reported the LA County Morgue and the Veterans Administration were blaming each other for the mistake.
Butler reported from the National Ceremony where the bodies are scheduled for burial.
She spoke to citizens who were outraged at how the deceased vets were treated.
It never ends.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse...
Oh dear God.
This is beyond shameful and unconscionable.
I’m absolutely horrified and shaken to my very bones.
This makes me so figgin mad ... mad beyond words.
Yet another VA scandal
Did I just wake up in Bizarro World?
My kingdom for a magic wand ... You gott'a go ... ZAP ... an' you ... ZAP ... and you an' you ... ZAP ... Oh, and you too .. ZAP ...
just when I thought I couldn’t get angrier
sacrificed and forgotten
I detest everything the left does and they try to destroy anything related to America
Let’s just call it what it is. Demorats hate the military and they hate our veterans. They disenfranchise them when it comes to voting, they cut their funding and they act like our soldiers are murderers.
After all this time it is safe to say Kerry wansnt the exception, Kerry was the rule.
This is where socialized med goes. Hubby’s uncle in the UK (WW2 Vet) died and they had to wait 2 months to bury him because of the system. He was a POW in the Pacific.
Why am I not surprised?
Anti-US Military, Commander in Chief of the US Military, B. Hussein Obama has another item now to add to his Resume’ of Dereliction of Duty towards the Military Personnel that he commands.
This is a matter for a Courts Marshal by the Joint Chiefs of Staff in June, 2014, followed by Impeachment Proceedings by the US House of Representatives, in July, 2014.
I don't give a tinker's damn who is responsible at the moment! Just make is right and point fingers later! I just thank the Lord that my father was given good, private health care in his failing years and was accorded full honors when he was interred at the state veteran's cemetery. I'm beginning to wonder how and when this government is going to find a way to eff that up, too. What a disgrace.
Disgraceful but unfortunately not surprising. Where were these peoples families however - who would put up with this?
what fool would let a body languish in a morgue for over a year? There are no excuses acceptable. The buck stops at Moonbeam.
what fool would let a body languish in a morgue for over a year?
It may be possibly against the law ?? for them to hold the bodies for a long time?
More scandals to come! To the Progs—the wrong side won the Cold War. They pine for the good old days of Stalin, Mao, and Fidel. They hate our men in uniform (baby killers like Gengis Khan), our history(Slavery-Gay bashing and Anti-womanism) and our way of life (Anti- PC, Anti-Communist). The Progs love to stick it to the man! As in supporting Shria Law even though it hates all the things they love (women’s rights, Gays, etc...) If the islamists ever win—the Progs will be the first decapitated. They, like the Marxists they come from—dream of a world that has never and will never exist-—True Communism must be enforced with the sword—degrades all but a few—and destroys all it touches. It is worse than fascism (Fascists are pro military at least).
