Please, please.....
Jack Coraggio just called the conditions at Walter Reed as: "notoriously deplorable". This kind of wording leaves the general public with the completely wrong impression of that great hospital! He needs to visit the Heaton Pavilion (Bldg #2) to get a different viewpoint. He should actually apologize for his remark! The over exaggerated uproar only involved one building #18, which was a converted motel...what would anyone expect? It did not involve the medical care whatsoever!
From one who was stationed there and has returned three times to visit the wounded!

Glen hey this Jack dude ain't got nothin to bitch about. I've been to 3 VA Hosp in Ca., plus numeous clinics. Never once been dinced by any VA employee, they have strict guildlines they must follw or there out! No War-time Vet {Vietnam esc} likes to be dissed by anyone, yet they know the VA will doo all they can do under todays standards. So what if one of the hundreds of VA hOsp and Medical clinics across the country doesn't try? You gotta bitch go to Vietnam or Korea or any war time country and see what they get. Be thankful Man and grow up like a front line3 infantryman or Combat Medic had to put up in a real war. What do you want The Hilton with room service? Sorry your ungrateful.Jeffsbay Vietnam Combat Medic I Corp 67-69 196th lt inf. We only fought NVA TRAINED TROOPS. NoVC RAT HEADS.

Sabertooth myfriend youmust of been a Marine, so hey that's ccool why didn't youjust tell me? All of us Vietnam Vets are brothers anyway. Yeah a friend of mine thoughtwe'd do a lil something in appreciation for what the Doobie Brothers have done for Vietnam Vets, lets just say they've raised lots of money for our less fortunate bros. So when they played outherein Caaround Aug 22 we got over 275 Vietnam Vets thatshowed up for there gig! Also presented with a nice plaque made from a clear type of gemstone plus they {8} of them got the Vietnam Beads you've seen them, there yellow, red, black and green, they dug those! Oh one more thing I have nothing against Lynard Sknyard there very good, but you see out here in Ca. there's soo many good bands from the late 60's and 70's I can't count too that many! You understand so sure I'm biased towards the Doobie Brothers and other groups like Santana, Jefferson Starship, Journey w/Steve Perry, Lil Feat, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and on and on! best of luck to you Sabertooth no hard feelings, left those long ago in thathell hole called Vietnam......jeff b. from Cayucos, Ca.
