As the Iraq War continues into its fifth year, we are reminded daily of its cost in human life. More than 4,000 troops have been killed while answering the call of duty in Iraq alone; hundreds more in Afghanistan. Yet for all the attention paid to those who have lost their lives, just as often do the wounded go unnoticed. As of the writing of this article, the number of wounded is well over 29,000. Many of these injured men and women are sent to Walter Reed Army Medical Center to receive medical care. Although the United States military provides soldiers with care for their wounds, it does not give financial assistance to allow family members to travel to the area to be with their loved ones during treatment.
