    There is little help from the Veterans Administration for soldiers who have lost genitals in combat other than caring for the normal loss of limb. Many soldiers and their spouses wish to reproduce, but the VA has said it has nothing to offer in this area, including paying for reproductive alternatives. Is the VA right on this matter, or should such loss be compensated?

    Nothing's too good for our dear soldiers. And I hope they get the best health care.

    Thank you for posting this. We need to get the congress off their butts. No excuses and none of the damn R telling us how they're gonna "save" money by making it a voucher system. If they want to save money, they can cut it from our already hugely bloated military and give some of it to our soldiers who gave their all, without question.

    The whole VA system is falling apart and our government is responsible for fixing it.
