If you're an enlisted person, fighting in the endless war on terror, if you happen to be engaged by the enemy, better hope they kill you, rather than just maim or disfigure you. Why?
Because if you're unable to finish your tour of duty, you will be expected to pay back your enlistment bonus. Never mind that your sacrificed part of your self so that military contractors will have enough Hummer juice to drive to their summer (or winter )homes, that's money that could be used to lure another sucker, er, I mean, soldier, off to protect the corpocracy in another part of the world.
Of course, when you come back with out an arm or leg, or suffering brain damage, you'll probably have to go through some sort of rehabilitation, do they charge you for that as well. then if you're lucky enough to find a job, well than you can start to pay back that bonus, while trying to retrofit your house with wheelchair ramps to make it easier for you to access, having given up part of your body so Big Oil can reap record profits. My suggestion? Collect money from all those people with the yellow ribbon magnets on their cars.
