“(P)art of the wall is torn and hangs in the air, weighted down with black mold.... Signs of neglect are everywhere: mouse droppings, belly-up cockroaches, stained carpets, cheap mattresses.”What is being described here? An inner-city crack house? A homeless shelter in post-Katrina New Orleans?No. These are the opening lines of a series of articles in the Washington Post this week about the outpatient facilities at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.The room described above is occupied by Army Spec. Jeremy Duncan, who returned from Iraq “with a broken neck and a shredded left ear, nearly dead from blood loss.”
