Help get justice for active duty military

From the American Association of Justice – The Faces of Feres:

Navy Lt. Rebekah Daniel went in to the same Naval Hospital where she worked as a labor and delivery nurse to give birth to her child. She never made it out alive. The healthy 33-year-old with a low risk pregnancy died hours after giving birth to a baby girl. Her husband and former Coast Guard officer, Walter Daniels filed for wrongful death after receiving no hospital explanation for her death. His claim against the military hospital, and therefore the federal government was dismissed, along with his subsequent appeals based on the Feres Doctrine. The Feres Doctrine prevents active duty military from suing the federal government, because all claims are considered incident to their military service, and therefore barred.

There is finally hope for a change, but we need your help. We ask our men and women in uniform to risk their lives protecting our rights, not to risk their lives in the hospitals when receiving routine medical care. Please reach out to your Members of Congress and urge them to support keeping the Feres Doctrine Med Mal Fix in the final version of the NDAA.

You can do this by telling your members of Congress to protect the rights of those who are protecting ours by visiting UnfairFeres.com. You can send an email to your members of Congress or tweet at them through the link. Use the hashtags #unfairFeres and #SaveStayskal. This injustice has gone on for far too long.
