    Military Dr making fit soldiers unfit

    I come with this story to bring to light my unfourtinate situation. Pertaining to the lack of professionalism & responsibility of Army Dr doing physical & emotional damage to myself & a few other soldiers that i know. I'm also telling this because I'm being medically retired due to the complete disregard & respect for a patients welfare. I've served MY COUNTRY 3x & all with honorable service time. I'm still currently serving. My story starts in Oct 2009 when I decided to come back in & serve term #3 soley due to the economy & having to support 5 children. The first 9 months upon my return we normal & something an ex soldier never forgets & within 6 months I'd received my first award for assisting operations @ West Point so it was like olde times do what a soldier does & get rewarded for ones experience & professionalism. In Sept 2010 I chose to have an elective procedure that by civilian experiences should have been a simple procedure w/lil to no complications, but as my headline states I'm not refering to an experienced & professional civilian Dr. I'm refering to a LTC in the military & his complete disregard to my physical & emotional well bieng & lack of professionalism & taking responsibilty for his medical mistake during & following the procedure I had. I've been dealing with my issues since 2010 & continue to today. Another part of this story comes from me being medically retired & feeling the complete disregard as far as my medical discharge % if I get the chance to tell my complete story you & the govt & the nation will know of the disservice that these miliyary Dr & those who put the % & # together & how it is an unjustice to myself & others I know. Physically & emotionally I have paid a great price for what has been done to me by these so-called Military Dr & as formentioned it is something that needs to be heard & solved. I will never be the man I once was ever again & I will never hold my trust in another incompetent military Dr again nor would I give faith to anyone who has these unprofessional Dr provide any surgery on a soldier & put them in the situation I'm in & as sad as it may be I know of other soldiers who also were fit capable of doing their jobs & now can't due to procedures they had by said military Dr. well in short this is my story & I hope for my sake & the welfare of future soldiers this story gets your attention.. sincerly Truegrit
