Mother tells of secrecy surrounding Ft. Myer child abuse allegations

Two former caregivers at an army day care center at Ft. Myer, Virginia are charged with assaulting children at the facility just next door to the Pentagon.

And at least 30 other childcare workers have been taken off the job after background checks found criminal records including sexual assault and drug use.

Military families are shocked and telling CNN’s Barbara Starr that the military kept them in the dark about many of the problems at Ft. Myer.

    Diabetes, often referred to by doctors as diabetes mellitus, describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar), either because insulin production is inadequate, or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin, or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination), they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia)..,"'

    All forms of diabetes have been treatable since insulin became available in 1921, and type 2 diabetes may be controlled with medications. Insulin and some oral medications can cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugars), which can be dangerous if severe. Both types 1 and 2 are chronic conditions that cannot be cured. Pancreas transplants have been tried with limited success in type 1 DM; gastric bypass surgery has been successful in many with morbid obesity and type 2 DM. Gestational diabetes usually resolves after delivery...,

      Probably you are no body as you have no mind at all. I mean future history will decide and you are not a history but just a warmonger crap. You should have tried to prove me wrong through counter argument instead of calling me idiot as this forum is not for using abusive language but for exchange of ideas on different issues in the world. Sorry I forget that you have no mind so how ypou can discuss ideas.

    I'm shocked. But not surprised. While you need a security clearance to clean toilets at the Pentagon, you can be responsible for caring for the military's kids without a background check. For what's asked of day-care workers, they are grossly underpaid throughout the US, mostly getting close to minimum wage in most areas. Is it any wonder, you get what you pay for?

      You the MIC employee forget what you have been doing to your nation and state just for your monthly salary. Americans as a nation have rejected you and voted in favour of CHANGE but you few continue to cheat them on one and other pretext. Now it is not an option to continue with the death merchandise in world politics but you have to change before before it destroy every thing. We are proud of our ignorance as after all we are not killers of poor nations and do not live on sucking the blood of poor states. Whatever we have we have eaned it. So use mind as what i have said is in your interest and in the interest of the world. This is globalisation age where your MIC has no value therefore do not waste time and find alternet job to live with pure human spirits.

    The entire civilian employment situation in the Army is an atrocity. Now the department has to go through the drill of pretending they're so shocked about the whole thing, set up a commission to study the problem and make recommendations, have some worthless political appointee executive manager resign in a show of remorse, plan a campaign of employee education in such esoteric topics such as the requirement to actually read the results of criminal background checks when they come back, and so on and so on. What really needs to be done is to abolish many of these functions, since the Army can't do the job anyway, there's no loss.

    Militarymen are trained for fighting , killing and terrorising the opponents therefore it is quite stupid to expect them of better childcare. Military mindset is military mindset which has left America no where and today fiscal cliff, trillion dollars debt and reputation as war mongers are the gift of Militancy in world politics. So long America rely on MIC its downfall will continue till end as a nation and as a state. IN new millinium only economically strong can be a super power as military strength is no more criteria for being a super power. So in the interest of America and the whole world get rid of MIC, concedntrate on trade and confine military to the specific job and divert defence budget towards public welfere projects. It is the only way to get out of fiscal cliff and further humiliation in world politics.

      And if you are not a resident of the USA or a service member, then i would do some looking around before i opened my mouth, the military employs civilians for child care, its not infantrymen, oh and in case you think otherwise, the US military is much broader than just combat, ask around a bit, you might be surprised what jobs we have in the service.

      i have nothing more to say than you are a total idiot. Concentrate on public welfare (note the correct spelling), what such as educate more of your people and give them loans for another convenient store? Wjm I agree with you 100%.
