  • How ironic -- so his son could have health coverage, the man gives up his life in Afghanistan (which is a war about keeping Afghanistan safe for opium farming and/or oil pipelines -- how noble)

    What a bunch of propaganda though --

    If only Obama's healthcare plan had passed, this man's life wouldn't have been lost! OOOooo...

  • Insurance for himself or for his family?

    Obviously it's not a good reason to join the Army.

    Medical treatment's going to become less available over time, whether you can pay or not.

  • His family. Their are very few options anymore for insurance for a family family unless you work for the government in some capacity. The military has some of the best coverage nowadays which is sad.

  • It is a good reason if someone in his family has a "pre-existing" condition and would otherwise not get health insurance.

  • I have seen families bankrupted and destroyed due to medical bills.

    Now you're speaking my language, Matthew.

    Also to sell weapons and drugs.  Any theater of chaos is very lucrative.

  • In Roman times, the legions made Gaul and parts of Germania safe for bankers just as our legions do today!
