yeah, that's been a perk for years now, nothing new. service persons can also get lasik.
BUT.....first of all, health care for service persons is not FREE. it does not come out of your paycheck, but that paycheck is tiny considering what they do. also, healthcare for your dependants and prime plans do come out of your check. i just got out last year and considering the training and deployment cycle, stress and danger, and the fact that your on duty 24/7 365 that paycheck is peanuts.
so if a marine/soldier wants his wife to have a new pair of boobs for the few months their actually stateside, i'd rather my tax dollars pay for that than support some welfare loser living off the system that guy is fighting to preserve.
