> It is a number listing 22,500 fewer people wounded than was reported the previous year.

Its because the first number was right, and by the time they generated the second # they had disqualified veterans from the list. Oh, they're still injured, but with a magic wand the military kicks them to the curb.

I got a relatively minor back injury during deployment in 2008. The USN sent me to BAMC where they determined I wasn't a candidate for surgery (but still injured) and sent me back to the USN who declared me "Fit for Full Duty" yet ineligible for retention - instead of giving me the medical discharge that would have been appropriate. They knew that I had only a few months left on my current enlistment so all they had to do was "Fall on the Ball" and run down the clock to get rid of me without a paper-trail.

*POOF* one less injured sailor to count. THAT is how its done. The ended my career without a thought and made it complicated to pursue the VA at the same time or even transfer my GI-Bill to my children. I was 45 with a clean health history, and yet the General in charge at BAMC (without ever meeting me or knowing my history) declared that it was a congenital defect - that went undetected for 45 years!

Texans know Bovine Excrement when they smell it.
