In Memory of Aaron Cruz (March 21, 1982 to April 25, 2005)

My son Aaron died in Utah of medical neglect while under Army orders.
He apparently received no medical care for his seizure disorder after he left our home in Portland, under deployment orders for Iraq, to report to his Utah Army National Guard unit.
Two years after his death, the Department of Defense has still not complied with my request for my son's medical records, citing a "large backlog of requests."
