"Disappointed and Troubled"

The House Armed Service Committee Chairman expresses dismay over a report that details how long soldiers with mental or physical problems have to wait before being discharged, reports USA Today
"I'm disappointed and troubled," House Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton, D-Mo., said in a statement. "These soldiers deserve high-quality care. The staff members charged with providing their care are doing yeoman's work, but the current staffing levels can't handle the load."
A U.S. House investigation found that ailing soldiers wait 2 months to a year before being discharged; the goal is a 1 to 4 month wait
