pissedoffmick: Sorry the guy lost his dong but - Penile implant replacement on a 61 y.o. fella? That is worth $350.00 max.

One suspects you will modify this opinion as years go by.

He was getting a penile implant (boner maker) replaced! This guy didn't lose his junk in battle -- he (or the hospital) froze it off after cosmetic surgery. I don't know why I am shouting this as I type! I am way too invested in this!

kriegfusion: [i129.photobucket.com image 600x450]

Maybe im thinking about this from the wrong angle, but last I heard, the life insurance for a service member (giggle) killed while on duty is $450,000 more or less. Somehow, knowing this old fark lost his winkie and now he's asking for compensation many times over what someones family would get if they were actually killed smacks of greed. Anyone have any thoughts? He should get something, but not 10 million. I feel a part of me wanting to say thats a slap in the face to those who died while in uniform.
Im conflicted on this one.

Well to be fair, getting killed is over and done with for the soldier. That guy's got to live with no dick for the rest of his life. How much do you get if you're paralyzed from the waste down (which I imagine also makes you unable to use your chonson)?

The other issue is that you can get more out of malpractice-caused injury than you can out of line of duty injuries as a soldier. You can't sue Al Qaeda for shooting you (well maybe you can, but I don't think they're going to answer the court summons).
