    If I went to Iraq and got a purple heart for, say, being shot by a sniper, would that improve my chances of getting a military residency?

    what about civilian?

    this is a serious question.

    Yes. As long as you're still fit for duty. A bullet between the 5th and 6th cervical vertebrae isn't exactly going to do wonders for your military career . . .

    You mean getting accepted to a civilian residency (yeah, they might look on you as "special") or do you mean getting deferred to a civilian residency by the military (unlikely . . .)

    Ummm, if you say so . . . :eek:

    Newspaper headline in the not-to-distant-future:
    Army Doc In Iraq Shot By Sniper -- Witnesses say the general medical officer was wearing a large neon bulls-eye, and as the shots rang out he reportedly screamed the phrase, "Ortho here I come!"

    I guess this is why you said that about it being a serious question huh?
