UK PAYS OUT TO WOUNDED SOLDIERS.

Apparently Britain is also struggling with care for veterans. Reuters reports today that the UK government is upping the amount paid out to soldiers wounded in battle. What I found interesting is that they previously paid a fixed amount to wounded soldiers. British veterans, called "War Pensioners," are already covered under NHS [PDF] like other British citizens. It's true that the NHS struggles with prioritizing care for soldiers amid the other demands for health care, but the debate isn't over how much health care funding should go to veterans, it is over how much extra the British should pay out to soldiers that suffered traumatic injuries.
