The con job of the century
If you are a US serviceman or woman and you fail to come back in one piece, you're pretty much on your own.
If you do receive medical services, you'll have to fight for every penny and what you'll get will be substandard at best.
Recently, the military has been sending bills to wounded soldiers.
Because of their injuries they failed to complete their tours of duty for which they received sign up bonuses. The government wants them to pay back the bonuses for the time they're not available for service.
It pays to read the fine print when dealing with the government.
It pays even better not to deal with the government at all unless you have a floor or two full of attorneys to deal with them...which is why the Fortune 500 et. al. have in essence taken over the country.
