    Death of an American Fighting Soldier

    in Military

    Staff Sergeant M. David Davis, USA (ret.), is a decorated combat veteran, military advisor &  nuclear weapons specialist.  He is also a soldier dying within months.  Not in the line of duty, but death due to negligence.  His death will be as a result of the Veterans Administration doctors who misdiagnosed his illness.

    According to SSG Davis, during “the last 10 years, I have been seen by the VA for sores which they gave me antibiotic creams & antibiotics by mouth with never having a biopsy. Last fall, I complained again to the VA & I was told, "Maybe warts or have I ever had HIV."  In February, I complained to the VA again and told my VA doctor who refused the records and the civilian doctor’s card to call. The VA doctor said, “I do not want an outside opinion and would not call.” After much complaining about a cyst on the right side of my face the doctor planned to have it taken out.

    Two days later I was diagnosed with metastases malignant melanoma, stage 4.  Further tests revealed, 6 tumors in left lung, 2 tumors in right lung, tumors in breast, neck and other areas. During my last meeting with the VA Oncologist, he would not offer me chemo or radiation because it would do no good. I asked for referrals to civilian organizations and or experimental treatment. My answer was. “The VA does not do referrals or will help me get into any research at civilian or pay any expenses”

    The final result is I am looking for my own burial sites.  I was not referred to social services at the VA to help me. So what is the outcome? I fought for my country and my country brings me home to die in its own government sponsored hospitals. If I had been properly diagnosed, referred, and or a simple biopsy performed  ten years ago I would not be dying and I would be able to watch my children marry and grandchildren grow.”
