MSNBC:

The Army announced the retirement Monday of its surgeon general, Lt. Gen. Kevin C. Kiley, in the latest fallout from the controversy over outpatient care of wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.

Kiley, who headed Walter Reed from 2002 to 2004, submitted his retirement request on Sunday, the Army said in a statement Monday.

He is the third high-level official to lose his job over revelations of substandard living conditions and bureaucratic delays at the facility overwhelmed with wounded from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The UK is concerned about after-care for their returning troops as well. (updated by John A)
