Remarks by President Bush, Senator Bob Dole and Secretary Donna Shalala on Commission on Care for America's Returning Wounded Warriors Report Implementation
Date:10/16/2007

WASHINGTON, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a transcript of remarks by President Bush, Senator Bob Dole and Secretary Donna Shalala.

THE PRESIDENT: Good afternoon. Thanks for coming. Welcome to the Rose Garden. I appreciate Senator Dole and Secretary Shalala and other members of their commission for joining me today. Welcome.

I just finished an inspiring meeting -- with Secretary Gates and Acting Secretary Mansfield -- with service members who were rebuilding their lives after being severely wounded in the service of our country. I wish all Americans could hear the service members talk about their strong desire to not only rehabilitate, but to enter -- be productive citizens here in America.

Yet our system for managing this care has fallen behind; it's an old system, it's an antiquated system, it's an outdated system that needs to be changed.

You know, that's what happened at Walter Reed Army Medical Center earlier this year. First of all, the care that's provided there is magnificent. Our doctors and nurses at Walter Reed are great healers and care givers, and they've saved a lot of lives. But there were serious problems caused by bureaucratic delays and administrative failures. And we're not going to let those problems continue.

We took immediate steps to address the problems at Walter Reed. The build
