And it's not just Our soldiers

Seems the Brit soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan are also being mistreated by THEIR health system. Folks, this whole damned thing needs to stop.

Enough, damnit. Enough. It's bad enough that we are in a war that is questionable, but to now treat the wounded like this, treating them without any regard, making their lives more miserable, is unconscionable. But I suppose that's what we should expect. After all, for most Americans and now it seems, most Brits, out of sight, out of mind. And to most, their support is limited to slapping a yellow ribbon magnet from WalMart or Woolworths to their SUV and slapping themselves on the chest! What is it going to take to wake you civilians out there up??? I know, it needs to be one of YOUR children, YOUR husband or wife, YOUR cousin or neighbour. Well, if we keep this level up, you might have to wake up and realize that it may be your family member.

This isn't really a comment on today's post but just a general one. This is my first visit to your site, LAW, and in reading your profile I was curious to see that you state that you are unique among the Guard wives you know because you consider yourself a liberal. Are you unique just among them, or among most women in your community? The reason I ask is that I think military wives are often unfairly stereotyped as "conservative," when in fact most of the ones I know are anything but. Am thinking about writing about this on my blog so was just curious about your take on it.
