    It's not a "new incentive". We've been doing it for years. Your tax dollars hard at work.

    Now you understand why I say the military budget needs to be CUT.

    It applies to family members, so when a soldier is over in Iraq, his wife can be getting breast implants for when he returns :bigthumb:.

    Sounds good to me.

    Also, if the boobs are paid for by taxpayers, does that mean you and I own them? :noes:

    One thing people don't seem to understand... the people doing those surgeries are Army personel. It's not like they're going out and paying someone else to do these procedures. An Army doctor gets paid the same each month, it doesn't matter how many surgeries they perform.

    I wonder if they've ever performed the breast enlargement surgery on a male soldier? :nose:

    That's pretty fucking cool. I'd sign up for some lipo, gastric bypass, and a set of tits.

    It still costs a shitload of money and it's something the taxpayers should not have to pay for.

    If it results and in better looking women, it's worth every penny.

    The justification for most of this is that the military surgeons need to maintain their skills in these areas for when they have to rehabilitate soldiers who have received combat wounds and injuries while serving in the military. It isn't enough to just patch up the wounds and tell the soldier to go away. They need to make them as whole as possible, which includes plastic surgery to remove the scar tissue, reconstruct facial and body areas that were mauled, etc.

    Soldiers in combat jobs use live amunition to hone their skills. Military doctors do the same when honing their skills in whatever specialty they happen to have. Their skills are needed, hence the maintenance of the skills are also needed. The breast enlargement statistic equates to ~125/year throughout the entire force of Army surgeons, which I would consider a bare minimum level of skill maintenance. It is also needed to keep doctors in the military who would otherwise opt to leave and pursue the hundreds of thousands of dollars available to specialists with their skills in the civilian sector. Doctors are valued as much for their knowledge as for their skill. Knowledge can be gained from books to an extent, but skills must be maintained by practice. Many doctors would just leave if they weren't allowed to maintain the skills that are so vital to their future career prospects.

    This is another example of a knee-jerk reaction without attempting to think through the issue.
