I started this petition to do my part in changing an unchangable system.  I have been sick since November 2011. My doctors are convinced that my health is failing because of my anxiety, and because of this they have failed to send me to the specialists needed for proper diagnosis. Yes, since I have been back from Afghanistan I do have increased anxiety.

I honestly believe the system needs to change.  Too many soldiers' health is being ignored, dismissed, or just overlooked. We serve our country for the freedoms many take for granted.  We should not be neglected.

Is a soldiers life worth the pride of another? I do not believe so.   The army especially needs to be supporting and guiding their soldiers and they are not.  I have been in almost four years and noone ever guided me on the steps to become a leader. I went to war and am now being treated differently for an injury I have because of that.  What is wrong here? I do not know where to start, but I think this is a good place.

I truly believe if I can help at least one other soldier from suffering then my pain will be all worth it!

Again, my family thanks you for your support.

      When you fight in the military the military owes you through providing you the proper medical treatment for anything you go through or suffer from as a result of your service. When they don't give you the treatment they promise you they are breaking a promise, and that promise needs to be fulfilled.

      Filling this out is only a wish. I do very much agree with this. However I believe it is uninfiltrateable. And sadly people that play power roles in our govenment, just dont give a shit. The DOD is just that The Department of Defense. They employ the cheapest labor possable at all ends meaning people and contractors. This is tragic, just like the fact that it is inpossible for citizens to wake up to the fact that our country is failing.

      I believe our vets deserve the SAME medical that our members of congress, senate, etc. get-they have sacrificed FAR MORE! Our vets deserve to be treated like the HEROES that they are-ARE YOU LISTENING U.S. GOVERNMENT? STIOP BREAKING YOUR PROMISES TO THESE BRAVE PEOPLE AND GIVE THEM THE MEDICAL TREATMENT THEY DESERVE!
