They get the best they can in the country they are in of course; then
if needed they come to the USA.  One of the biggest Islmaic mullahs
who preached about the Great Satan, the US, died recently.  He'd spent
his last years in Boston, undergoing treatment not available

news.google.com, search "nhs soldier"

"Soldiers injured in the invasion of Iraq are having to pay for
expensive private medical treatment to avoid long delays on NHS
waiting lists."

[further in the article]

In the latest issue of the RAF's newspaper, a sergeant writes: "It

wait approximately another six months to receive an operation and
together with recuperation I will have been (medically) downgraded for
close to 18 months.
