Support Our Troops

Frank Schaeffer writes in a Washington Post op-ed (free, but registration required) about the pittance that's given to the family of a military member killed in action, $12,000, compared to the average $3.1 million to $4.2 million given to families of victims of 9/11. (Families of police and fire fighters received the higher amount.)

It's shameful.

that's really sad. i wonder if there's any pending legislation to fix that??? we can't leave things like that, especially since most of the people in our military are poor to start out with--either from the country or the ghetto.

sad.
