    The U.S. military has reversed a string of decisions that would have restricted access for severely wounded troops to a popular dining hall at Walter Reed hospital, after Fox News began reporting on complaints from veterans and their families. The military earlier this month decided to invalidate meal tickets and reduce hours for the Warrior Cafe, the sole dining facility in building 62 -- home to all multiple amputees and long-term, recovering patients at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. The wife of one of the veterans affected by the decision told Fox News on Thursday that...
  • Veteran's Story About Michelle Obama Using War Amputees as Photo Props

    I caught this story being posted, and asked for permission to blog it – it’s pretty harrowing: J.R. Salzman @jrsalzman I've had veterans tell me a very similar story: Kids forced to go hungry for hours during Michelle Obama media event … 5:12 PM - 04 Mar 13 J.R. Salzman @jrsalzman .@AZ_Susan She told the soldiers and caregivers from Walter Reed they were receiving an award and having a luncheon. Neither one existed. After considering whether to tell the story, J.R. relented: J.R. Salzman @jrsalzman In light of Michelle Obama using hungry school kids as props, let me tell...

    WASHINGTON – Maj. Walter Reed's sword was symbolically handed over to the Navy at a ceremony Wednesday marking the closure of the Army hospital bearing his name, where hundreds of thousands of the nation's war wounded have been treated for more than a century. The tone was somber at times, but mostly celebratory, as more than a thousand former and current staff members and patients — some of them wounded troops from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in wheelchairs who have lost limbs —gathered under a white tent to say goodbye to the Army's flagship hospital. The Army band played,...

    I want to see the whole thing. Every American should demand to see the whole damned thing. And then you need to demand to know the names of every higher-ups in the military and the government who read or saw this thing and did nothing about it. I’m talking about the chilling slide presentation that Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan gave at Walter Reed Hospital while a senior-year psych resident in June 2007. The Washington Post publishes details of the slide presentation, though not the original document itself. [Update: Good! WaPo publishes the full slide presentation here.] Goodbye, “Do no...

    The group backing Birther Army Doctor Terrence Lakin as he makes his way through the military justice system announced today that Lakin is waiving a preliminary hearing that was set for Friday. Lt. Col. Lakin refused orders on the grounds that Barack Obama is not eligible to be president. It is now up to Maj. Gen. Karl Horst, Military District of Washington Commander, to decide if the case will go to trial, said Chuck Dasey, spokesman at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, where Lakin is assigned. The American Patriot Foundation said in a press release: Saying that the...
  • In Hasan Case, Superiors Ignored Their Worries

    Fox News ^ | Monday, January 11, 2010 | Associated Press
    While in medical school at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences from 1997 to 2003, Hasan received a string of below average and failing grades, was put on academic probation and showed little motivation to learn. He took six years to graduate from the university in Bethesda, Maryland, instead of the customary four, according to the school. The delays were due in part to the deaths of his father in 1998 and his mother in 2001. Yet the information about his academic probation and bad grades wasn't included in his military personnel file, leaving the impression he was ready...
  • Major Hasan's Islamist Life

    11/20/2009 6:18:31 AM PST · by Presbyterian Reporter · 9 replies · 747+ views ^ | November 20, 2009 | Daniel Pipes
    The title page of Nidal Hasan's PowerPoint demonstration for a medical lecture in June 2007, indicates how little interest he took in medicine and how much in the perceived contradiction between being a Muslim and an American soldier. As the Pentagon and Senate launch what one analyst dubs "dueling Fort Hood investigations," will they confront the hard truth of the Islamic angle? Despite encouraging references to "violent Islamists" by Sen. Joseph Lieberman (Democrat of Connecticut), chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, there is reason to worry about a whitewash of the massacre that took place on Nov. 5; that is...

Not much new happens outside Walter Reed. We haven’t had a confrontation with the Azzhats in years.

It was taught by Mr. Trooprally. It’s fairly easy to remember so if on the off you...

    Many Freepers don't believe it, and though there is very little evidence on the internet, we do now have proof that Mister Obama has from time to time spent quality time with the troops. Mister Obama talking to a troop outside the Men's Room. Is that a bottle of Purell? Our very stealthy PleaDeal snuck into Walter Reed behind Mister Obama's very large entourage of Secret Service agents, staffers, manicurists and pedicurists, make-up personnel, and general purpose "yes" men as they entered the facility. Once inside, she was able to take some very rare and candid photos. It's not...

    Karl Rove wrote Let's Be Worthy of Their Sacrifice in the Wall Street Journal on 2 Jan 2009. He closed with this thought , “May the New Year bring safety to all who wear our country's uniform, success in the missions they so passionately believe in, peace and comfort to their families, and reunion with all whom they love.” First AAR of the New Year and as you can tell from the accompanying pictures the Goracle was warming up some other part of the world.
