On this day July 17, 1862

On this date congress passed an act that states Entitles every service member who has been hurt during time of service is entitled to a pension for the rest of his life.

I have heard several people say that service members knew what they were getting into when they signed up. That they are should not be given these benefits. It truly irritates me considering in the civillian world, people are perfectly ok with workmans compensation. People are ok and feel that companies should pay for injuries to the employees. Well this is just the military workmans compensation.
