Jim Gaffigan recently spoke with me about why he's reaching out to military families, why becoming famous has been both a blessing and a curse, and why his stand-up doesn't need swear words to hit home.
Giffords' survival to this day is vivid testimony to the effectiveness of our Department of Defense and civilian medical communities not just to patient care but to the dissemination of information and training.
As a truly world class rehabilitation facility closes at Walter Reed, that facility is being replaced by fragmented and geographically separate facilities. Now care for our combat wounded is about to suffer further.
America ships soldiers off to Afghanistan and Iraq for free. If you come back in a body bag, they ship that back for free, too. However, we make families who send soldiers socks, food and underwear pay shipping costs.
