Default Since we can't get anyone to sign up to go to Iraq...

...we might as well just start sending the injured soldiers who came back.

http://www.salon.com/news/2007/03/11/fort_benning/

oh boy, we're really scraping at the bottom of the barrel aren't we. We have to send people that are classified as "unfit to serve", doesn't anybody else see anything wrong with this??

I'll go ahead and copy/paste you this quote from the article :

One female soldier with psychiatric issues and a spine problem has been in the Army for nearly 20 years. "My [health] is deteriorating," she said over dinner at a restaurant near Fort Benning. "My spine is separating. I can't carry gear." Her medical records include the note "unable to deploy overseas." Her status was also reviewed on Feb. 15. And she has been ordered to Iraq this week.


Wow...we've sunken to a new low.

I did my duty as an American and VOLUNTEERED for my tour in the military and I served proudly and If I get called back I'll proudly go and defend your pussy ass rights to hike behind my fellow soldiers!

You're probably one of them peace, love, and happiness types that sit back and talk about all your rights and freedoms but will never do anything to secure them.......

Just remember that one female soldier taht has served for nearly 20 years that has more balls with a broken, deteriorating spine than you will ever have!

People like you make me sick!

Secondly, like the 3rd Division/3rd Brigade)......a US ARMY division has between 10,000 to 15,000 soldiers in it and in a US ARMY Brigade there are between 3000 to 5000 soldiers in it...... The 3rd Brigade is 3900 troops strong and is stretched thin..... the total of 75 troops with injuries have probably been an oversight...... But the media like "reaction news" it help with their ratings...... Besides there is nothing in this article that says these troops with injuries are leaving for Iraq except for a female with psychiatric problems......

I saw what you wrote and I was asking you a direct question. Did you ever serve in the military? If yes, then when, where, what units and what was your MOS?

mikesova, Your a fucking media puppet!

Before you go off cutting and pasting media articles, you had better know all your facts about the 3rd infantry Division..... and not just the ones you're hiding behind in the article!

I asked you a direct question......... Did you serve in the United States Armed Forces?

It's a simple question mikesova. Did you serve? That article has nothing to do with my question, I just want you to help me understand your POV.

I know that this is aimed at Sova, but it seems like you are acting like you are better than him because you served. I don't think that is a fair statement.

No, he's better than me, because he signed up for a government job.

I'm also better than you because I work for the water department. If it wasn't for me, you guys wouldn't be getting fresh treated water. Bow before me!!!!

Not because I signed up for a gov't job, because I have the Honor, the Courage and the Commitment that it takes to serve my country! While a pittiful person likeyourself, sits and hides behind the rights that people like me died for!
