Mr. & Mmrs. Lacey are instituting legal action against the Veteran’s Administration for failure to provide their son with help for mental problems after he returned home from Iraq. They took their son to a VA hospital, but hospital officials refused to give an assessment until their son was alcohol free. They went home and their son hung himself in the cellar.
The Lacey’s are members of “Families Speak Out” which consists of Iraq war families whose son or daughter or husband suffers from the tour in Iraq. Bush is so eager to boast about concern for soldiers, but his administration has done little to help those who suffered in his crazy war.
