Another cost of the war

In Al Tompkin's list of good resources for covering Veterans' Day, the projected cost of providing health care to new veterans from this war. We're talking something like $122 billion. The figure comes from a study by two economists, reported in this Houston Chronicle editorial. Tompkins also cites a USA Today story on a survey of returning veterans and their possible claims.

Just one more thing to add to the problems of paying for health care in this country. The effects of the war just keep coming...and will the rest of our lives.
