Extreme Makeover: Military Edition
Bigger breasts offered as perk to US soldiers

The New Yorker magazine reports in its July 26th edition that members of all four branches of the US military can get face-lifts, breast enlargements, liposuction and nose jobs for free – something the military says helps surgeons practice their skills.
Between 2000 and 2003, military doctors performed 496 breast enlargements and 1361 liposuction surgeries on soldiers and their dependents, the magazine said.

Seriously, WTF? The army wants to produce skilled plastic surgeons? "Oh I'm sorry, I can do anything about that gaping shrapnel wound but I can botox those wrinkles if you want?"
