Boots on the ground in DC

I am in silver spring Maryland trying to get my Dad better with the gods of mortality has landed him in a nursing home.

I am staying in the hotel where the parents of critically injured soldiers at Walter Reed are housed. The hotel van takes me to my Dad's nursing home. in between trips to Walter Reed.

I asked the van driver if the parents of the injured soldiers are proud of the sacrifice made by their children.

He said , Hell no, They are mad as hell., every last one of them.
