Veterans news, articles and information:
|11/29/2014 - Tens of millions of Americans were outraged earlier this year when news broke that Veterans Administration hospitals were deleting veterans' records and failing to schedule them for needed medical appointments in order to appear as though they were fixing a horrible backlog of patients who had yet to...|
|11/17/2014 - It's becoming clear -- honorable US service men and women are becoming nothing more than expendable numbers filed away in a system set up to profit off their service, rather than respect and honor their service. For those who volunteer to serve, it's about defending the country's freedom and values,...|
|10/28/2014 - The potential for Ebola to be deployed as a weapon of terror has been on everyone's minds since the Dallas outbreak and the NYC doctor episode. One prominent online publication now believes that Ebola's deployment as a weapon is already under way (see below).
Virologists have long known that Ebola...|
|9/24/2014 - Army veteran Stephen Simmons arrived home from his last tour in Iraq in 2008, but adjusting to civilian life has been difficult due to his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). (1)
It's not uncommon for those suffering from PTSD to experience feelings of shock, guilt and anger, while also having...|
|8/25/2014 - It's easy to let current circumstances in our lives dictate our thoughts and feelings. When a problem arises, if we get sick, we are quick to blame it on anything but ourselves. In this way, we are undermining the power of our own thoughts and intentions at work, in us and around us, guiding our present...|
|8/6/2014 - The VA hospital system has come under fire recently, ironically around the same time that Obamacare enrollments were initially pushed. The main concerns have been VA eligibility applications "lost" and long waits that have left many needing urgent care or having gone beyond care, as in dead. There have...|
|7/16/2014 - "We are all connected. We can't just build a wall or a fence and say no more. This is America. Our doors are open." These are the words of U.S. House of Representatives John Lewis, (1) one of many democrats who seem to be stampeding over each other to see who can offer the most enticements to accelerate...|
|7/4/2014 - Another whistleblower has stepped forward in the ongoing VA scandal, telling CNN reporters that records of dead veterans were changed or physically altered -- some even recently -- to hide the number of them who have died while waiting for care at the Veterans Administration medical center in Phoenix,...|
|6/29/2014 - A newly issued report by a U.S. senator found that more than 1,000 U.S. veterans likely died in the past decade because of malpractice in regard to a lack of proper and timely care from the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) medical centers.
The report from Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., himself a physician,...|
|6/16/2014 - A just-released report by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) revealed that the dearth of patient care for our nation's veterans is more widespread -- and shocking -- than initially thought.
The report, which was based on an audit of nearly half of the VA's 1,700 medical centers, clinics and...|
|5/26/2014 - Recent revelations that VA hospitals kept veterans on secret "waiting lists" to deny them care are shocking, if not downright despicable. If the moral integrity of any government is measured by how well it treats its own veterans, the current U.S. government has almost no morality at all. We owe it...|
|5/20/2014 - The horrific Veterans Administration scandal, in which scores of patients on a "secret list" reportedly died after spending as long as a year without treatment, has widened. CNN correspondent Jake Tapper recently grilled White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough over President Obama's usual scandal...|
|5/16/2014 - Researchers have made progress toward understanding a set of physiological mechanisms that underlie "Gulf War syndrome," a heretofore mysterious illness involving a diverse set of symptoms that affected scores of troops who returned from Iraq during the first Gulf War.
According to a recently released...|
|4/6/2014 - From flashbacks and insomnia to anxiety and depression, veterans are coming home to America in need of help on many levels, and the last thing they need is "chemical" medicine. Though "psych" meds are prescribed almost across the board for "psychological" issues, the psychiatric manual DSM-5 doesn't...|
|1/30/2014 - Did you know that the number of homeless (or on the brink of being homeless) veterans who served in the Middle East has tripled in just the past three years? It's true. Many "vets" are returning from multiple deployments with more stress, more injuries and more needs for help and resources. They should...|
|12/5/2013 - You may not always agree with our country's decisions to send troops to certain parts of the world, but holding the men and women who do the fighting in contempt is not right, no matter how you feel about U.S. foreign policy.
So it's no surprise that veterans and the owner of a local bar and grill...|
|11/17/2013 - It used to be that "yoga" and "veterans" were two words you never heard in the same sentence. But in 2013, yoga for veterans has become a necessary practice for those suffering with PTSD, with classes springing up around the country. In fact, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' National Center...|
|11/11/2013 - A major indicator of the deteriorating quality of conventional medical care in the U.S. is its growing reliance on pharmaceutical drugs as a catch-all for pain and disease management. And a new study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry shows that this dire situation is only worsening,...|
|10/16/2013 - The president of the United States has his priorities mixed up. And what's more, he ought to be ashamed of himself.
That isn't a Democrat or Republican criticism. It is a statement of fact regarding any American president who would allow illegal aliens the "right" to protest on a taxpayer-bought-and-paid-for...|
|7/10/2013 - A pensions case has become the site of a vicious battleground between the Anglo-American establishment and a British scientist in a row over accepted safe levels of radiation exposure.
It began in 2011 when a group of 16 veterans of UK nuclear bomb tests in Australia and Christmas Island applied...|
|3/27/2013 - Doctors and medical professionals at the Veterans Affairs are handing out dangerous tranquilizers such as Xanax and Valium to military service members diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder though they have been repeatedly advised not to do so because of the potential the drugs could cause more...|
|9/14/2012 - The research is preliminary and the results inconclusive, but scientists believe several factors are related to repeated exposure to combat conditions could be causing premature aging among many of our nation's veterans, though some believe the cause could be much more sinister.
|7/26/2012 - The United States, for its warts, has achieved much in its short 230-plus year history. It is a benevolent world superpower, for the most part, that serves as a beacon of hope and freedom for an increasingly oppressed world, even as it serves as a guardian against tyranny for as many as half of the...|
|7/18/2012 - Eight U.S. Army veterans have claimed in court that the federal government denied their medical claims and that the government regularly does so with scores of other veterans as part of a "standardized" practice.
In the suit, the vets - led by plaintiff Dannie Fail - claim the Army's Servicemembers...|
|7/16/2012 - There is despicable, there is diabolical, and there are both. This appears to be a story about the latter.
Families of four veterans diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder following their tours of duty in combat zones who committed suicide after returning home are charging Prudential Insurance...|
|5/27/2012 - We depend on them to protect our country, our lives, our freedom, our way of life. So why does our government continue to shortchange our veterans by chronically underfunding the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), especially at a time when our vets need the VA the most?
As lawmakers and the president...|
|5/12/2012 - The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is no different than any other government agency, in that it is a slow, bureaucracy-heavy, perpetually under-resourced leviathan that isn't as responsive to its constituency as it was designed to be. But that doesn't mean the VA, as it is most commonly known...|
|3/30/2012 - As if some returning veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan didn't have enough problems already, many of them are now being prescribed risky painkillers that can have profoundly negative effects, especially for those with pre-existing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other physical ailments.
|9/14/2011 - More than 20 years after the end of the Gulf War, tens of thousands of US veterans are still complaining of a host of symptoms developed during or after their tour of duty.
They suffer from memory and concentration problems, chronic headaches, widespread pain, depression, balance disturbances, gastrointestinal...|
|6/3/2011 - "If mentally incapacitated troops are being drugged with dangerous, mind-altering drugs and deployed to battle against their will, how can we say that we have a volunteer army?" asked Alliance for Human Research Protection, the national network dedicated to advancing responsible and ethical medical...|
|2/5/2009 - The number of veterans needing health care is rising, and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is having difficulty meeting the needs of our veterans.
New statistics released from the Department of Defense and the VA reveal that US casualties are rising. Injuries and deaths connected to Iraq and...|
|8/25/2008 - The post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) coordinator for a Texas veterans hospital sent an email to facility staff suggesting that they stop diagnosing returning Afghanistan and Iraq veterans with PTSD.
"Given that we are having more and more compensation-seeking veterans, I'd like to suggest that...|
|11/3/2006 - Highly toxic depleted uranium has created a death toll reaching the 11,000-soldier mark, and the continuing scandal is thought to have been the main reason behind the recent departure of Anthony Principi -- the secretary of the Veterans Affairs Department.
Arthur Bernklau, executive director of Veterans...|
