Worst to Come at Walter Reed

Worst to Come at Walter Reed

Severely wounded Iraq veterans struggling to find their rooms, get appointments, or get their paperwork to the right offices. Families unable to communicate with doctors or find housing near the hospital. Mold, rodents and cockroaches in patients' rooms. Hopefully, you have heard about this story by now.

The Army and the Department of Defense saw no need to fix these problems until they were embarrassed by a series of reports in The Washington Post.
