Troops Encounter Mold, Leaky Roofs, Even Bats

The Veterans Affairs' vast network of 1,400 health clinics and hospitals is beset by maintenance problems such as mold, leaking roofs and even a colony of bats, an internal review says. The investigation, ordered two weeks ago by VA Secretary Jim Nicholson, is the first major review of the facilities conducted since the disclosure of squalid conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

My son served for two years in Iraq. He has a severe case of ptsd and we've been put on a waiting list. Everything you read about the VA is true. It's worse. It's a disgrace. My son and his fellow soldiers deserve better.

I'm so sorry for what has happened to your son. This is criminal. I'm amazed that the fallout from Walter Reed hasn't been worse. It should.
Support the Troops, says Bush and the GOP.
They own this war and they own the shoddy treatment the vets are getting. Their lack of action proves that they don't care about your son.
We do.
