This week Burke speaks with Daniel Gade, an amputee veteran who lost his leg while serving as a commander in Iraq back in 2005. Gade has spent his time post-service critiquing the services provided by the VA, discussing some of the horror stories he personally experienced after his amputation.

Gade’s book, Wounding Warriors: How Bad Policy Is Making Veterans Sicker and Poorer, goes into great detail talking about serious issues within the VA system and how they care for veterans after their time of service.

Gade is a professor and activist for veterans' rights and hopes to draw attention to these issues after hearing other stories around the country.

You can preorder Daniel’s book on his site for a signed copy, Gade has also partnered with a variety of veteran’s organizations. All preorders using the discount code “YelllowRibbon” will lead to a donation directly to one of these organizations.
