For a period of six months every two years, 1,000 Navy doctors and nurses sail the coasts of Latin America and the Caribbean on a kind of medical tour, offering free checkups and treatment.

The American military is unique in world history. We don't fight to steal someone's land, their women, or to loot their homes. We help people and protect them from bandits.

Right now, we have a Commander in Chief who believes America is the source of all evil in the world, whose military are full of mercenary war criminals. He is actively rooting for the bandits in every locale.

If the medics of our military do good across the Americas, good for them. It's better PR than what Obama is giving us around the world.

And the President goes to Arizona and his motorcade drives right past the "killer" hospital and won't even stop to see if things have improved. I had to wait from April till January for tests to see if i was hemorrhaging.

Can I interject something into this discussion? Not to be rude, but, I know about these medical missions.

1. The military doctors that do these missions, are not denying veterans medical assistance by doing these missions. These missions are ongoing support missions in their various major command areas. And when they are on their missions, the only people that end up having a bit longer waits are active duty and military members on Title 10 orders.

2. Veterans that are waiting up to six months for services, are in the VA Healthcare system, which is quite different than the Active Duty system on various military bases. Some vets, like retirees, are assigned to MTFs (Military Treatment Facilities), and they are lower priority patients than active duty and Title 10 military members.

3. The beef you have is with the VA system, not the military doctors that go on humanitarian missions. Our MTFs and the active duty doctors DO NOT provide health care assistance to veterans that aren't active duty, on Title 10 orders and/or retirees that are accepted to an MTF for service.

Cogent points, thank you.
