Crowded hospitals

I was told this morning Bethesda is over-flowing with Marine casualties. Walter Reed can't handle the incoming soldiers. My experience on Ward 57, where I was treated for months when I arrived, was horrible this time around. The military is hiring un-qualified contractors to act as "nurses". The soldiers here complain about them all the time. Many are from the Caribbean. Many, I suspect, do not have nursing licenses. One Air Force EOD friend said he kicked those nurses out of his hospital room and told them never to come back, even if he was dying.
