    Interesting story about the UnderSecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness - retired Marine MajGen Dr Clifford L. Stanley. I hope he is succesful in his mission.

    I hope he is successful too - it was awful to read about his personal tragedy. What baffles me is why this kind of reform to care for wounded/disabled soldiers is coming so late...

    He's a very nice man and I guess I'm not allowed to mention that his last job, The President of Scholarship America, was and is an Obama agenda backed organization with funds funneling in from places like The Tides Foundation. Check out how one of the partners, Colin Powell's "First Focus" group gives a fair and balanced view of the then presidential candidates in 2008.

    It's just political payback and again, a very nice man but...with a huge agenda.
