DOD Stonewalls Freedom of Information Act Request From Ailing Vet

A veteran has sought information about Fort McClellan’s chemical contamination from the Department of Defense since last year, but his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request has gone unanswered.

Raymond Pulliam – a 53-year-old veteran – was forced to retire in 2012 due to health issues he believes were caused by toxic contamination at Fort McClellan, where he was stationed in 1979 for basic training.


Money saved at misdiagnosed veterans’ expense

From Courthouse News Service:

NEW HAVEN (CN) – The Vietnam Veterans of America says the Pentagon has "systematically and wrongfully discharged" more than 22,000 veterans since 2001 "on the basis of so-called 'personality disorder'" – rather than post-traumatic stress disorder – to deny them medical care and save the Pentagon $12.5 billion in medical and disability payments.
