Unfair Soldiers' Disability
Army Times this week had an article with some facts that Army soldiers are not treated fairly for disability claims, even though they are bearing the brunt of fighting in Iraq. From the numbers, they get lower disability ratings (i. e., less money) than other services and lower than Army officers. The article had personal examples of very unfair treatment, too. Apparently the bureaucrats just grind them down in paper work, trying to get them to settle for less than they are entitled - like insurance companies do. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.
