RE: formalin

From:"Blair, Keith R Mr IACH"

believe it ford, we have just gone through a difficult period of cost cutting , hosp closings , severance of services  and loss of military and civilian civil servants in the dept of defense. the last 8 years under the previous presidency was very definately military unfriendly. since 9-11 that has all changed . you cannot carry out a war on terrorism with minimum staffing and minimum funding. 3 years i could only order 2 weeks of reagents or supplies at a time , money was so short.- kblair ht/htl irwin army hosp, ft riley kansas

Please forgive me.  This is a little off topic, but I can not help myself.  "A military commander at an Army Hospital" that is "cost effective" conscience?  Are you sure this is correct?  I don't believe that I have ever heard of such a thing in the military.... boy, times must be changing!   ;-)
