Are you saying that the Army medical staff was so incompetent that they couldn't save the babies, and had the babies been given care at a private facility they would have lived? Is that what you're inferring? Because I'm a little confused by your statement.

What's awful about this is that they have been investigating these deaths since June 2010, and still no cause has been established.

10 babies have died in four years at Fort Bragg - USATODAY.com

I am saying something is wrong.

Yes, health care is one of the first things I would look at.

It could be the parents did not follow up, who knows???

Ignoring the weird grammar of your post, the government does take care of it's military families. Until we see more about this story, I think it's highly irresponsible to assume it is the governments fault.

That is why I did not say for sure.

If there was a mold question the babies should have been tested.

Did you know some military families go off base for heath care??

Still not understanding what this has to do with 'government health care.'

Military families are free to go to the doctor(s) of their own choosing and (can/do) receive medical services from the same doctors as people with private medical insurance.

Being part of the military community, yes, I am well aware that some military families go off base for health care.

I did not notice that you mentioned mold before. Surely, if that existed the babies should have been tested. I don't think anyone would dispute that.

You did not mention mold in the post I was responding to. So I could not respond to your queries about mold in this particular situation.

You said "it doesn't say much for government health care". That infers it's the fault of the Army's medical staff. I don't know much about Military health care. Is it that incompetent?

If you look at the thread you will see that others were confused by your statement. So it would be nice if you address everyone and not just focus on my response.
