Everyone needs to watch this video.  I wanted it last night and couldn't stop crying for the longest time.  For those of you who have family in the military pay close attention.  My advice would be to have a doctor to the "citizens" check them out.  DON'T relay on a medical doctor.

Sad thing is that they cannot be seen by civilians without paying for everything out of pocket. When we sign the dotted line we give up certain rights as normal citizens and so do the families. Its part of the sacrifice we make. But hopefully with this story and others like it things will change in the military medical system.

They aren't just doing this to soldiers but their families as well, I was almost killed in august and cant say a thing because I was treated at a military medical center and don't have the right to sue them. The only good thing for me is that I have a choice to be seen by civilians since im only a dependent now, my husband does not have this luxury.
