Admiral Mullen, May I Have a Moment of Your Time?
June 2, 2010
Dear Admiral Mullen,
It has just been brought to my attention that you are visiting Fort Bragg today. I understand that you will include a visit to the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) while you are on base. I am very pleased to hear that you are taking the time to visit this unit and I would like to make a few suggestions, if I may be so bold.
As the mother of a Marine who has been assigned to Wounded Warrior Battalion East, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina for over a year, I have become extremely concerned about the care and treatment being given to our Wounded Warriors across the nation. I have spent the better part of the last year attempting to ensure that my own Marine receive proper care, but I have run into countless brick walls. I began at the source, and moved my way up until I have found myself in a place where I have exercised all of my options with the exception of coming directly to you, Sir.
