Posted on 08/15/2013 7:58:18 AM PDT by ColdOne
In a disturbing revelation about the treatment of America's most severely wounded troops, Fox News has learned the military earlier this month decided to invalidate meal tickets and reduce hours for the sole dining facility in the Walter Reed building where they are recovering.
The decision affects the Warrior Cafe located inside building 62, home to all multiple amputees and long-term, recovering patients at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.
The decision would mean wounded warriors who would normally have a government-funded meal just down the hall would have to walk, wheel or limp nearly a half-mile across the Walter Reed campus to the temporary "food trailer" for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

but the illegal aliens just have to take the elevator down to the breakfast area of the nice hotel we are paying for so all is well...
Just another benefit of Obama’s sequester in making the Wounded Warriors get more exercise to help them recover. Next they should require them to do the old run, dodge, and jump and the 50 foot overhead ladder before they get their meals. Of course, the armless would have to do the ladder and the legless do the run-dodge-jump, and not vice-versa. And perhaps Ms. Michelle could create a hip-hop cadence for them to do their exercise in step with.
(This is a totally sarcastic statement)
This makes me physically ill. I was honored to stand with my fellow freepers, often including Doctor Raoul, on several occasions at the entrance to the old WRMC to applaud the troops as some were taken by bus out to dinner on Friday evenings.
Code Pink was also there, doing their usual bit calling the troops baby killers and worse!
I wonder what ever happened to that bunch of idiots.
Now the question is “WHO SIGNED THIS ORDER?”
Bump for later.
Bump for later.
Once again, the Mahdi shows how much he bitterly hates America and
but these guys really suffered life changing and devastating injuries...
and to treat them like this is EVIL...
I don’t understand why our ENTIRE military just doesn’t “stand down” until that piece of sh*t is removed from office. Or, better yet, take their oath to protect us from all threats both foreign and domestic seriously and remove that turd themselves.
The Commander in Chief in the meantime is playing Golf, and enjoying a multi-million dollar vacation.
What a piece of scum we have running this country.
I don’t know how any Secret service Agent who serves this scum can look at himself in the mirror.
The Oturd in chief continues to push trying to get his summer situation to pop. He has tried do hard to push the American patriot over the edge so he can clamp down.
Congress has no gonads and will allow this criminal to continue destroying America because they are part of the process and work towards the same end. We would like to think they are crazy but clearly they are not in charge, someone else is pulling the strings.
I do not like the country that we have become, not one bit.
I enlisted into the Army at the age of 17 1/2, yet I will do everything within my power to keep my grandchildren from ever serving in the military of this country.
Smokescreen. The real news here is that Oprah has suffered yet another instance of racism.
