60 Dead Veterans left to rot in LA County Morgue for 18 months while Obama Gets Photo Op in Afghanistan

la county coronerNothing our president does comes as a surprise anymore, but when he uses our troops, still stationed in Afghanistan, for nothing more than a photo-op to deflect from his abysmal neglect of veterans here at home, it’s beyond shameful! I wonder, did he really think that we’d swallow that little bit of theater? Does he really think the American people are that stupid? Answer – Well of course he does!

There is more shocking news regarding the VA scandal coming out every single day now. But boy, howdy….didn’t he look great putting that wreath on the tomb of the Unknowns on Memorial Day? If I was one of those “low information voters,” I would almost swear that he really does care about our nation’s finest. Thank God I’m not that stupid! For the president to tell America he knew nothing about the problems within the VA is also insulting.

More disturbing news has surfaced about the neglect by the VA. This time it comes from Los Angeles County, where the dead bodies of at least 60 veterans have been left in the LA county morgue for almost a year and a half without being processed and given a burial with honors that they deserve.

This past Thursday, the LA County Coroner’s Office was asked why the bodies had not yet received a proper burial after a source indicated there may have been as many as 60 veterans at the morgue for the past year and a half. The morgue says the bodies were unclaimed and they don’t know how long the veterans were there.

The law states veterans are supposed to receive a proper burial.

The Veterans Administration says they were never notified the bodies were processed and ready to be buried. The LA County Morgue and the Veteran’s Administration were blaming each other for the mistake. I would have given almost anything to have listened to that conversation.

The Obama administration’s neglect of my fellow veterans is beyond insulting. But what the heck folks, what’s one more scandal to these people? How many more times will our president act “outraged” and promise to get to the bottom of things and not do a darn thing? The White House and the DOJ have done everything they can to impede any investigations ranging from Operation Fast And Furious up to and including this latest scandal involving the Veterans Administration.

I’ll tell you what I’m grateful for; I thank God that I have a family that cares about me. I’m also grateful that my wife and I have already paid for our cemetery plot. I shudder to think what would happen to my remains if I didn’t have a family, or if I had to depend on the VA to provide me with a timely burial. Would my body be left to rot in a county morgue like those men?

If this story doesn’t make you mad as hell, then nothing will.

I wonder, what those dead veterans in the L.A. county morgue would say to our president if they could speak?

    This situation is a disgrace. NEWS FLASH: Most Politicians don’t really care! Sure they spit out sound bites to get votes, however few really care. Perhaps if it was a requirement to be a Veteran to run for Congress or President or Vice-President, things would get better. I Just viewed a video by Montell Williams about the VA Health Care problem.

    I am a Vietnam Era Veteran who could have been a draft dodger, but chose to serve because I believe we live in the best Political System in the world. Montell caused water to drip from my eyes.

    I went through hell on my return from the service, and I still have scars. I’m not whining, but I believe Veterans earned and deserve better than this. What say you?

  3. Thom says:

    The government officials have found themselves at the point of no return. They no longer bother to try and hide anything. They are getting desperate and anything will likely happen now. I hope you all are prepared for the worst.

  4. Laura Bernard Mielcarek says:

    Are you saying that every news site and blog that reported this story is a hate site? Were are those sites also trying to generate hate by reporting NEWS?

    • No just the ones who insinuate the va did it on purpose like this one.

      Thanks again for your support of the truth

      • Laura Bernard Mielcarek says:

        The article says no such thing. It says the VA and the morgue blamed EACH OTHER. No where does the article say the VA did it on purpose.

        You understand nothing, bozo.

        I do support the truth. YOUR comments and the truth have NOTHING in common. You wouldn’t recognize the truth if it walked up to you and slapped you across the face.

  6. Get with the Patriot Guard Riders , the Missing In America Project and the American Legion to get the unclaimed remains and cremains of vets buried with honor. Don’t complain do something. My buddy complains about Obama daily with e-mails. But on Memorial Day my buddy and our fellow veteran comrades didn’t show up for our local Memorial Day Observance in Andrews,SC. Just me and my Commander. The usual response was, “I got something to do.” Quite sad. Guess they won’t be active around Election Day. They got something to do.

  7. 5warveteran says:

    This problem does not solely lie within Obama’s responsibility. It also lies within the responsibility of those politicians who allowed these things to happen and continue to allow them to happen.
    Do not ever think that one man is the sole cause of America’s problems let alone the VA’s.

    Donald Trump has Offered 50 MILLION Dollars for Obamas Birth records,
    , and wanted Obama to Pick his favorite Charity …. So we the
