Hey, Old Timer. I know who to blame. The Big O. Did you read the article, Bozo?
<Jen Salvati, VAC Operations Manager, said that Dishon’s illness had been designated as 100 percent service-connected since he contracted it while still on active duty, and that he thus would ordinarily have qualified for military air transport; however, she said, she had been informed that funding for such mercy flights has been curtailed by Sequester budget cuts and that the armed forces have been appealing to private sources for help.“We got a call from Sgt. Dishon’s social worker,” she said.
“It’s a duty and an honor to be doing this,” Summey said.“For me it’s an uplifting experience. But I can’t help noticing the irony that the President of the United States can spend a million dollars’ worth of taxpayer money to have Air Force One fly him to a golf game with Tiger Woods but the Air Force can’t afford to fly a terminally ill veteran with a hundred-per-cent service related disability to his hospice.”>
It once took me five days to catch a flight out of Subic and then I had to wait another day in Hawaii for a connection back to the mainland. It's not like scheduled airline transport. I think the issue here was that this guy might not have made it if he had waited for standby space-available transport. He was delivered directly to hospice care as soon as he arrived.
You are awfully judgemental for someone with so few facts. Military personnel and their families have always dealt with this system, not only under Obama. I understand you don't like the President but keep your indignation and crocodile tears to yourself. Your blatant exploitation of this dead man walking speaks volumes.
