For the last twenty years, I have placed myself
at the service of 4 different armed services and one civil service.
I have ruined my back, my knees, my feet, and
even my mind for you. During the same twenty years, I have tried
to forget the things I have seen and done, with
no success. Do I have battle injuries? No. I have life injuries.

our country is dying, I say this. You are as responsible for its
as any other, and more than most. You
denied proper care to service people. You let the lowest of us go

in our country. You have broken the contract we had, unspoken, but
