Cornyn: Obama has ‘misplaced priorities’ as Walter Reed ends meal service

Cornyn said veterans recovering at the Bethesda, Md., hospital have been notified that their meal tickets are invalid. He also said the facility has reduced access to the wheelchair-accessible dining facility on the medical center campus.

Cornyn demanded that Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel reverse the “unacceptable” changes.

“These men and women have sacrificed everything on our behalf; the least we can assure them is a hot meal in a wheelchair-accessible facility,” Cornyn said. “I call on Sec. Hagel to reverse these unacceptable changes at Walter Reed immediately.”
