    I may sound naive by asking this, but when are you guys / girls going to fix mil med? How is it going to happen? Probably no one will want to talk about this, but oh well.

    Kinda like the horse in animal farm. I will work harder.
    For my part I've tried to unload the backlog of screening colos and tried to capture some of the VA guys who were getting the shaft downtown. Of course, not doing any of that now since I'm deployed.
    As far as a bigger fix to the system, it probably won't happen. There is so much money tied up in Tricare that it can't die. The good old days of cradle to grave military medicine are dead. It's sad, since in the long run I'm sure it's cheaper.
