Supporting the troops

If they’re wounded in combat, they have to pay for their own hospital meals.

And in some cases, they apparently have to buy their own gear — including things like night vision goggles and field radios.

That tax cut is just looking better every day, isn’t it? (Addendum for the literalists: no, the tax cut is not reason the military charges for hospital meals, and that’s not what I meant to imply. It’s just symptomatic of the choices we make as a society — or, perhaps more accurately, the choices that are made for us.)
