    But it is Health Care and Military related (both up your alley).

    Joint Commission official visits Camp Lejeune  from Salon.

    The Joint Commission, the nonprofit healthcare accrediting organization that inspects the quality of patient treatment at hospitals, has dispatched an official to assess potential problems at Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune.


    The commission's review comes after a series of Salon articles chronicled complaints by Dr. Kernan Manion, a civilian psychiatrist who formerly worked there. Last year, Manion complained in writing to superiors about life-threatening deficiencies in the management of mental health care for Marines with psychological injuries from combat. Seeing little response, a frustrated Manion finally appealed to a series of military inspectors general and was fired four days later last September.

    Just in case you missed it and were interested.  

    Btw:  you do good work and I know I'm not the only one who appreciates it.  We should say so more often.

    As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. John F. Kennedy

      Now an inquiry into poisoning on a SC base, if I get time and think about it again I'll try and search out the article.
