My son Michael Fremer was killed at Fort Polk, La on 2/13/08 because of Army Negligence during a training exercise. The Army can not be held accountable because of the Feres Doctrine. This law needs to be changed. Why is the Army exempt from being held accountable for Negligence? Our young men and woman are risking their lives. This is how our country treats the soldiers and the families? How many others die because of poor training? It seems the Army keeps this quiet.

There are other cases that involve the feres Doctrine. For example Medical Malpractice in the army. Also Marines being exposed to Toxic chemicals on US Bases. The Military is exempt from being held accountable on all of these matters. The Feres Doctrine needs to be overturned.

This is a petition to overturn the Feres doctrine:

Colton Read is the latest victom of poor medical care in the Military. This is the same Military hospital that Killed Dean Witt. This occurred at the David Grant Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base.

The family can not take action because of the Feres doctrine. It is time for congress to act.
