It is tragic that it requires the News to do an expose on this kind of thing to make the government step in and do the right thing in the name of spin control. But what about the wounded soldier's whose stories are not being presented? Bush had plenty of time for a photo op with these very wounded soldiers when they were in the hospital, displaying his supposed compassion and concern - but as soon as he was out the door they were forgotten! This is a travesty and more than a case-by-case intervention by a General needs to be done to make sure our maimed soldiers are not driven into lives of poverty and despair. These are the true heroes of this war; they are the ones doing the "hard" in Bush's "hard decisions", and they will do so for the rest of their lives. They need to be treated better and they need to be treated better right now! And there is no excuse for delay. We are only talking a few thousand seriously wounded soldiers - every one should have an advocate assigned to them to make sure they are treated right! The arguments of a tedious bureaucracy being at fault are totally bogus - the pentagon bureaucracy sure doesn't have a problem in billing these soldiers for their "unearned" bonuses in a prompt manner! There was pleanty of money to help the victims of the WTC, why is there so little to help our wounded vets? If anything, they deserve more, not less, than the WTC victims. A website needs to be setup where wounded soldiers can expose their situations and get public support to make sure they are treated right! Wade.
