Once a Soldier, Always a Dependent
Sommers, Christina Hoff
Hastings Center Report. 1986 Aug; 16(4): 15-17.
Comparing the military personnel-Army relationship to the relationship between children and parents, Sommers offers a rationale for the provision of health care during active military service and for service-connected disabilities beyond active duty. For disabilities or conditions that are not service-connected, Congress may take a step in the right direction by requiring veterans to show financial need before receiving care from the Veterans Administration. This would follow the parent-child analogy--a parent may choose to support or assist an adult child, but the child has no right to such care. (KIE abstract)
