We are pleased to report that we are all in with the active military and veteran support organization Team RWB. It provides a great outlet for those that have served and are serving by an active athletic program that supports local races, and a wide variety of activities. Andy Harp noted “As a Marine that has served around the globe, it is a pleasure to support my fellow service men and women.”Check it out! www.teamrwb.org
As one who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, I am very familiar with the U.S.Supreme Court decision entitled Feres v. United States as should anyone who serves. If a service member is injured due to improper medical care he cannot sue the government. Military Times most recent edition had an excellant article that explains this law and the need for it to be changed. It also provides many examples of the hardship it causes. Essentially, the Supreme Court said several decades ago that since a service member has other benefits such as the VA or military disability Congress didn’t want to give another right. The systems have changed and severely injured malpractice victims need a recovery that helps them receive some quality of life. A good review of each situation might reveal that there is a party not protected by Feres that is responsible. Please contact us if you would like a free copy of the article!
