This is weird !!!

NEW YORK - The U.S. Army has long lured recruits with the slogan “Be All You Can Be,” but now soldiers and their families can receive plastic surgery, including breast enlargements, on the taxpayers’ dime.

Apparently, the doctors need to practice surgery to keep their skills fresh, and this is probably good for increasing military enrollment because the plastic surgery craze is so high these days.

Yes, they need practice because you never know when a soldier will need bigger boobs during combat. I'm not a surgeon, but I think that plastic surgery is pretty different from GSW and mortar injury surgery.

I thought so too, but that's what an army doctor said on the news... how doing plastic surgery keeps their skills fresh.

I agree with Skiowad

It's definately just to cash in on the plastic surgery craze- but imagine how intelligent you must be to risk your life life to get a nose job

Actually, U.S. Army doctors are some of the best plastic surgeons around and were some of the first to develop reconstructive surgery techniques in order to help injured soldiers reintegrate back into society after WWII. So any extra practice they can get only benefits those injured soldiers who need help.

Can men get them, too?

Men can get facelifts... I dount many will want the boobs though.


Hey, this just makes me want to join the military right now. Perks!

Does anyone else think the title is ironic?

Perks... bahaha

It's all your fault, corrupting my innocence.

Did anyone see the Man Show when some guy got paid $200,000 to get breast implants? This just made me think of it

By Poison_Ivy (Poison_Ivy) on Friday, July 23, 2004 - 07:52 pm: Edit

i would never get implants no matter how good and perfect they look. just look as anna nicole and what did they do her. they popped. i like my boobies the way they are..

i think only rhinoplasty is a good surgery. plus face lifts, i know a few who could use those. and chemical facial peel.

Love the attitude, poison (bout the boobs). I don't agree with any form of surgery that isn't reconstructive.
