Is there no end to the outrage? First, inadequately armored helmets, vests and Humvees. Now we learn our combat troops lack clotting supplies to keep their wounded comrades from bleeding to death (6/9, A-1). Some have bought these themselves.
We beg each politician who struts into Iraq or Afghanistan for a photo op to take vital blood-clotting bandages for the troops. We will certainly include these in the care packages we mail.
Perhaps we Kansas Citians could initiate a collection drive through a church or nonprofit agency. Literally, a heart-to-heart gift.
