Unfortunately, this is a large biproduct of our improved medical treatment. People are surviving things that would have killed a soldier in Vietnam. So many many more people are returning home injured. War is an ugly enterprise. Just imagine the toll that this war is going to take on the Iraqi people as well. I hope it was worth it.

Knowing our trusty government, they will find a way to screw a large portion of these vets out of their benefits. We will see.
