VA Forces Army Veteran to Get X-Ray to Prove His Leg Is Missing

The Department of Veterans Affairs wanted to prove that Army veteran Chad Fleming was actually an amputee. So instead of referencing his extensive medical records or simply looking to see that he’s missing his left leg, they insisted that he get an X-ray taken of his artificial limb.

“You think that they’d just look at my records and say, ‘You know what? We bought 14 legs, this guy’s an amputee.’ But no,” Fleming told The Blaze.

“[The doctor] actually laughed. And I told him, I said, ‘You wonder why the country is in such a deficit? It’s because you’re wasting money taking X-rays of a leg that doesn’t exist.'”

“It’s like, ‘Dude, I’m not a starfish. It isn’t going to grow back.'”
