Aside from whether those that choose to go to the war are innocent dupes, consider it a wise career move or whatever, and aside from what benefits the military should and shouldn't get, it is fascinating to learn how injured soldiers are treated by the United States government.
There is apparently a program whereby military personnel can transfer some benefits to immediate family members (such as certain education benefits). To be eligible for the program, you need to be in the military for six years and have enlisted for an additional three, but if you have been injured so badly that the military won't reenlist you, you are not allowed to transfer the benefits to your family.
In other words, healthy soldiers can get this transfer benefit, but it is closed off to the most badly injured.
