So far over 400 US soldiers have died in Iraq (during and after the "end" of

flown out for various other health reasons, most importantly for mental stress. Fred Weston

who do have healthcare have to pay ridiculous amounts of money for it,
and even then, they have to worry about co-payments, deductibles, etc.

care system is diseased.
