Len's Summary: As part of an effort to minimize soldiers’ pension costs (the largest line item in the Federal budget), the US embarked on a massive program of rehabilitation in an effort to return badly wounded men to productive lives. This resulted in the vast expansion of the medical rehabilitative specialties and the creation of Veterans Administration. Also available as a Nook book.
