This is heartbreaking. There’s something fundamentally wrong in a country when its warriors and their families have such a difficult time in getting excellent and quick medical help. This is the perfect example of why asking the rich to pay their fair share and closing tax loopholes for corporations like oil companies makes sense.
I’m not one of these people that says all soldiers are heroes as that’s like saying all teachers love kids, all doctors are saints, and all CEOs are crooks. But I do believe that a country makes a pact with its soldiers. In return for risking their lives to carry out the missions given them by their civilian leadership, soldiers, and by extension their families, should expect to be cared for AFTER the war is over, especially if they have been wounded. It just seems like such a simple and honorable thing to do.
