    That really is not true. The military supports its soldiers as much (or as little) as the rest of the country does. If you do not come out to support the troops you cannot really complain that the troops do not have the best body armor or proper health care. I'm not saying that soldiers don't deserve those things (of course they do!) but have you noticed how liberals tend to point out these things that the country is not doing for our soldiers while at the same time not coming out for community welcome-home parades or military funerals or whatever? Its like they want it both ways. ~Georgie, TX

    i understand what you are saying georgie, but it isn't really like that. when people talk about veteran health care not being good they are pointing out the hypocrisy of the kind of people who GO to military parades and CRY at military funerals yet still VOTE to support candidates who cut taxes and don't expand veterans' benefits or authorize sending in enough armor, etc. i also just wanted to say how much i liked this film. i really loved 'children underground' and this is really different but also really good. it made me think and i kind of wish i was in high school so i could talk to other kids about it because that would be a good age to talk about these things. i'm now in college so i guess it is still a good time to talk about these things, but none of my friends are thinking about the army the way my friends in high school were. *Molly, Brooklyn, NY

    When you go home you should show the movie to your friends from high school. Especially if any of them ended up joining. I think it would be really interesting to watch the film with people who were just recruited and then talk about how real it feels. I just wonder if, for someone who is in the military, that kid who was trying to use the army as a way to get into shape is typical? Like, it would be interesting to talk to people in the army about the reasons the other guys in their unit joined up, you know?

    it supports them with good health care - unlike the rest of us! why can't all those crazy townhall people crying about the government getting involved in their health care understand that all tax payers provide health care to military families so that they can go out and shoot people in iraq. we are paying for it!

    I'm not sure what you are trying to say in your comment, but I think it is true that the government does provide good healthcare coverage to military families and that is notable when discussing government involvement in healthcare. And I think providing our soldiers with healthcare is a good thing (and I'm not sure why that should be different depending on where in the world our government sees fit to send them).

    i dont think the army supports its soldiers as well as it could and should. the army doesnt really pay that much if you look into it. it does offer some housing and food and stuff but it really isnt that much and that is really true if you are trying to support someone other than just you.

    How does the army support its soldiers?

    With enlistment bonuses and a salary equivalent to their lives.
    Then they just forget about them all together.
