Wounded soldier needs your help!
Specialist Jason Gunn of the 137th Armored Battalion lost hearing in his left ear and whose left leg artery was severed when an I.E.D. exploded under his humvee, killing his sergeant and injuring 2 other GIs. After being treated in Germany and spending a few weeks on medical leave at home with his family, the Pentagon ordered him back to the Iraqi slaughterhouse.
Before going back, Gunn was able to see a doctor and received a diagnoses of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), medically unfit to serve in a combat zone. The Pentagon ordered him back anyway, promising that he would stay in the rear and do paper work so that he could continue to take his PTSD medication. But when he got back to his unit in Baghdad he was forced by his commanders to sign paperwork that said he was medically fit and wanted to go back into his old job patrolling the streets in humvees!
“They don't care what condition soldiers are in, they just need a body to fill a quota, and they don't care what they send back from Iraq either” said Pat Gunn, Jason's mother. She has begun, in conjunction with Military Families Speak Out, a campaign to get her son out of harm's way as soon as possible.
