2. Not only do they have to pay for their phone calls they have to
pay for their meals while they are in the hospital since they aren't available for duty! Story in the hometown paper a couple of months back that a local guy severely injured in Iraq was being billed $5.00 a day for food served him while at Walter Reed. The bill was up to something like $800.00 and the Army was withholding his paycheck until it was paid. The guy gets his legs blown off and they hit him with a bill for lousy hospital food. I think the paper was attempting to try to get our local repug to talk to the Pentagon and get it taken care of, never heard the outcome.
