@Molly2014:  I hadn’t seen your story on the bee until now and my goodness, I am so sorry for everything you have been through. I had tears in my eyes reading your petition and I hope and pray that you are able to find a resolution to this.

I have too experienced a similar situation in my family; my aunty suffered a severe brain injury due to medical negligence during an operation – we are coming up to the five year anniversary of her operation and there has been no change, she is essentially a vegetable and will be until her body one day gives up. We have lost the person she was but cannot grieve and move on while we are in this state of limbo. These situations are completely heart breaking and soul shattering. 

I hope that in your instance you can at least find some comfort in that you did not have go through a long and drawn out process, and that you are able to in some way find the strength to move on from this. While you will obviously never forget him, I hope you find comfort in the fact that he did not have to suffer for too long.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers xx

@Molly2014:  I’m so sorry for your loss. You’re such an amazing, strong woman for standing up for other soldiers so that something like that won’t happen to them. Your brother would be very proud of you I’m sure.

Signed. I knew nothing of the Frere’s Doctrine and am appalled. This is a thing, people. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feres_v._United_States 

As it’s a Supreme Court desicion, I don’t know how much can be done to change things, but it without doubt needs be be better known and causing a stir. I am heartbroken at what you and your family have been through. I wish you all strength and fortitude as you pursue justice.

Signed. Also shared of Facebook. I have a lot of people on there that are either in the military, have friends that are/were, or who have since gotten out. Hopefully a lot of them will sign.

As a 26 year vet I have been aware of this doctrine for many years and have always felt it is wrong.  You are mandated to use the military’s medical system but you can’t sue for negligence?  Excuse me?  This has been a thorn in my side for years.

I am so sorry for your loss.
