“I have, like many other [wounded and many other] disabled veterans, suffered from the inadequate and often inept care provided by the Veterans Administration. I have, like many other disabled veterans, come to realize that our mental and physical [disabilities and] wounds are of no interest to you, perhaps of no interest to any politician. We were used.”

“The Iraq War was the biggest strategic blunder in U.S. history…It installed a corrupt and brutal government in Baghdad, one cemented in power through the use of torture, death squads and terror…On every level—moral, strategic, military and economic—Iraq was a failure. And it was you, Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, who started this war. It is you who should pay the consequences.” – Tomas Young

Tomas Young, an Iraq War veteran and member of Iraq Veterans Against the War (www.ivaw.org) died last week, on November 10, 2014, the day before Veterans Day. He was 34 years old. He died of complications of his incurable war wounds (and of complications related to his complex medical care including the cocktail of toxic and addicting drugs that had been prescribed for him for the last ten years of his tormented life) that he had incurred in Iraq. The initiating physical wound came from a sniper’s bullet that severed his upper spinal column in Sadr City, Iraq on April 4, 2004. Young had been in Iraq for only four days. More
