WASHINGTON - US Defense Secretary Robert Gates sacked the civilian chief of the US Army Friday, saying he was "disappointed" with the service's response to a scandal over the care of wounded troops at a top military hospital.
Already under fire for surging more troops to Iraq, the White House announced it was forming a bipartisan presidential commission to review the care given to wounded servicemembers.

Well I'll put in my 2 cents for you.
I think it's despicable that returning wounded soldiers are being treated so poorly. However, because I'm not from the States I can't give a total sympathetic response as I don't know if it's just the military hospital that is doing this or if this is a general malaise that goes through a lot of hospitals in the U.S.

Doesnt anyone want to know how the US is treating its soldiers?
Doesnt anyone care at all?
Where are all the rightwing Bush supporters?
This is very appalling, they put their lives on the line for their country yet they are treated like this ?
Out of sight out of mind?
