Wounded in Battle

Hello everyone,

I need your opinion on something. I just got done watching the news and seen the segmant on the latest soldier wounded in Iraq. They said that the young man was in a coma and on life support in a hospital in Germany. The Pentagon called his family and urged them to go to Germany to see him cause it could be their last time. Now I feel that the Pentagon, or the government should at least offer to pay the families way to Germany to see him. Am I wrong for feeling this way and am I the only one that feels this way?

God Bless

Though I do not know all the details, yes, I agree with you, that their travel expenses should be paid for!

Whitout a doubt the gov should pay for it. I could not come up with that kind of money with out charging it or taking out a loan on my house. I think most of us are like that. cau
