Our tax dollars at work or enlistment benefits:

...members of all four branches of the U.S. military can get face-lifts, breast enlargements, liposuction and nose jobs for free -- something the military says helps surgeons practice their skills.
Uhh, if they need practice and don't have real work to do I'm sure there are plenty of emergency rooms that could provide more appropriate practice for a military doctor.

On the other hand, there are plenty of combat injuries that will eventually require skilled plastic surgery as part of the recovery process. But, again, working on real victems of trauma would seem a more appropriate training ground.

Via Classical Values.
