Re: word from Iraq


Any veteran is eligible for care at VA hospitals, but the priority is service connected disabilities. Military hospitals are specifically for active duty military, with dependents and retirees being cared for on a "space available" basis. The closest military (Army) hospitals to Iowa would be the small one at Ft. Leavenworth, KS, and slightly larger ones at Ft Riley, KS and Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. The Navy has one at Great Lakes Naval Training Center north of Chicago, and the Air Force has a tiny one near Bellevue, NE, and a slightly larger one at Scott AFB, IL, south east of St Louis, MO.

So just what is the difference in who is eligible for service at
military hospitals vs. Veteran's hospitals. We don't have any military
hospitals in Iowa...just a couple of VA Medical Centers that the
government has been trying, unsuccessfully, to close for the last decade
or so. I wouldn't even know where the closest military hospital
is...Chicago maybe?

I really should stay out of this, but I have to say that my son served
four <br>years in the navy in the late 70s. A couple of years after he
got out, he had <br>a terrible accident on his bicycle. Although
bleeding badly and half <br>conscious, he asked to be taken to the
military hospital in Albany, in preference to <br>the private one. The
treatement he received was excellent. He required <br>extensive
reconstructive surgery on his face, and they brought in specialists and
<br>continued the treatments until he decided, on his own, over a year
later, that <br>he could live with what he had. They would have done
more. He was only a <br>seaman. His son is now in the
navy.<br>Auralie<br><br>In a message dated 02/02/2004 3:24:32 PM Eastern
