A Scandal Over Care for Wounded Veterans

Heads roll as disgusting Walter Reed conditions are exposed.

What happened
The Bush administration fired the secretary of the Army and vowed this week to improve conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, where hundreds of wounded Iraq veterans have been denied benefits and left to fend for themselves in rooms riddled with vermin, mold, and cockroaches. As a result of the scandal, Army Secretary Francis Harvey and the commander of Walter Reed were both forced to resign, and President Bush created a bipartisan commission to investigate how the care of wounded veterans at the Washington, D.C., military hospital became so shoddy.
