Former Army Ranger Chad Fleming didnt just put his life on the line for his country multiple times, he gave one of his legs for it.
Fleming was wounded three times in battle, the third one of which caused him to lose his left leg.
But when he applied for benefits and care given his status as amputee in person how he was treated by Barack Obamas now-infamous Veterans Administration hospital system was unbelievable.
Despite his examination before a doctor, and extensive medical records of his combat injuries, the VA told Fleming to go and get an x-ray on his prosthetic leg, to prove his status as an amputee.
The Blaze covered the ridiculous demand from the VA, as related by Fleming:
Chad Fleming, a veteran who served in the 75th Ranger Regiment, says the VA took an X-ray of his artificial leg to prove he was actually an amputee. Though they could have referenced his extensive medical history or just used their eyes, he said, they wasted precious resources taking an X-ray of a leg that doesnt exist.
[The second doctor] actually laughed, Fleming said. And I told him, I said, You wonder why the country is in such a deficit? Its because youre wasting money taking X-rays of a leg that doesnt exist. Its like, Dude Im not a starfish. It isnt going to grow back.
PROOF that a wounded vet is an amputee. Think about that for a minute.
And then contrast this with how Obama treats illegal aliens under his lawless DACA amnesty. Illegals are not required to provide any verifiable proof that they were brought to this nation as children. Illegal aliens have been caught making fake rent receipts in MS Word to prove residency, along with phony birth certificates and baptismal certificates that were never checked. As a result the DACA program has approved for amnesty a stunning 99.5% of applicants. But this patriot who lost his leg an Anbar Province had to prove it with a freaking x-ray. This Marines daughter find that graceful.
Like a true warrior, the former Ranger Fleming handled the situation with humor, but how other veterans have been treated by Obamas VA have been beyond scandalous, with many veterans suffering and even dying while waiting for care, only to have their cases covered up by corrupt or incompetent bureaucrats.
Fleming,has been announced as a headline speaker in U.S. Navy Seal Marcus Luttrells upcoming Patriot Tour.
