    Here's how you know any soldier is worth recovering dead or alive whether that soldier volunteered or was drafted:

    He or she's been trained.
    He or she's wore the uniform of the day for the unit to which he or she was assigned.
    He or she went to the duty station.

    That's it. Once he or she signs on the bottom line or steps forward to take the oath of the service that soldier is entering, that soldier has earned your support.

    Your support for efforts to recover their body should they die while in service - no matter under what condition that death occurred, is your duty and responsibility as a citizen of this country.

    Your support for efforts made to recover every soldier taken prisoner during any conflict is your duty and responsibility as a citizen of this country.

    Your support for whatever it takes to heal soldiers from injuries and sicknesses incurred while in the service is not an option. It is your duty and responsibility as a citizen of this country.

    It is for all of the reasons stated above,
    you should consider the need to create a combat soldier
    as a failure of government.

    The time has come to repair this country and care for its' veterans.
