    They shouldn’t have better care, But if they are in a war and are injured it is their government’s duty to take care of them, and to do so humanely. Personally I think that the quality of the care should be equal, because every citizen plays an important role in the country.

    You cat’s should have VA hospitals like in the US. Some are excellant, others are fair. We strive to be the best. I take pride in my job, but I don’t have direct patient care. Some people are really good at that while others including me aren’t. During a code once I looked into this one dudes eyes & he was really bearing down on my arm, now I had really long hair at this time & some people thought I looked like JC. So while I was talking to this cat I told him to relax everything would be ok, he looked right into my eyes took a breath smiled & slipped away. He looked so peaceful, & I really felt guilty like a led him on, I didn’t want him to die, but maybe that’s what gave him the power to control his own fate. I only know that my presence there helped him in some way. Sorry, I digress. Soldiers should be given the best treatment possible but not any better than someone who can afford to pay for the same treatment in private industry. Not all soldiers deserve our sympathy, most do & I’m glad I’m not the one who this hedious decision is thrust upon. Please God let me do it for the right reasons. Please don’t let me hurt another & others like him. As usual Lord you never make anything hard. I love you all & hope to see all y’all out & out & agout Thanks [email not allowed] & ChaliQ

    Our serving soldiers , deserve the best medical care there is . They are a special case . The National Health Service ,was a service of excellence , It is now a second class care system .( with many holes and faults at patient level) Our soldiers deserve better than that !Sigh we all need proper care …..>

  4. antepasts says:

    Yes they should. They are extrodinary human beings to do what they do. Its not even like you can say the money makes it worth their while. They sign up and volunteer to put their life on the line for their country and I think its the least that we can do as a thank you to offer them the best care possible if they come back hurt or maimed.Also a soldier can come back from a war zone with very different injuries to what civilian medical staff are used to dealing with. I doubt if you get many rocket attack casualties in your average a+e! So they should get state of the art military only hospitals.

  5. magnetize says:

    Nope! Its their choice, and lots of other people ‘serve their country’ too doing they’re jobs. A lot of people aren’t sure they believe in the cause anyway and that soilders do more damage than good! They should be treated of course, but I see no reason why they should be better treated.Does a fireman get special treatment for an injury saving someone from a burning building? xxxx

  6. ulstering says:

    They should get priority care especially while on active service.Preferably in a British Military Hospital instead of being dumped anywhere.

  7. gelhard says:

    I served as a soldier and have been in a military hospital. I then went to work in civilian hospitals. Military people do require special services and a different atmosphere. They often suffer from traumatic events and it is difficult to work through this surrounded by people who have no clue. They deserve high quality medical services and the latest technology; so do civilians – it shouldn’t be one or the other, we are a rich society.

  8. Bat says:

    for me its not,because soldiers already knew the consequences of entering this profession!

  9. bravery says:

    They should receive first class treatment in special Military Hospitals….

  10. narcohypnia says:

    Londonbaby, can’t compare emergency services- have unions.Soldiers deserve some preferential treatment, given the covenant between state and the military?Belief in whether any particular conflict right/wrong irrelevant.I believe most balanced answer was from James M, influenced conclusion of essay.
