A recent article about treatment of our troops in Iraq, based on an account in the Army Times, stated that a proposal to pay survivors of combat casualties was trimmed from $12,000 to $6,000 by the Bush administration.
The Army Times article did not explain that the $6,000 figure is for burial expenses, while the insurance pay out is $250,000 to the families of combat victims. We hope this sets the record straight.
