Project Censored wrote in 2014 that "The US military has been engaged in a policy of forcing wounded and disabled veterans out of service to avoid paying benefits and to make room for new able-bodied recruits. Identifying injured combat soldiers as delinquent and negligent has lead to a practice called “chaptering out” which results in those soldiers being forced to leave the military without an honorable discharge. Because of this, thousands of soldiers have been chaptered out, losing federally sponsored benefits including health care, unemployment, and educational programs... Dave Phillips estimates that 76,000 soldiers have been chaptered out since 2006, and that number has increased every year since the war in Iraq began."[1]
