If this story doesn't convince you of the need for health care reform that provides universal care to all Americans, nothing will.

Army SPC Greg Missman re-enlisted in the military after he lost his civilian job in order to ensure that his family had health care. After being on the ground in Afghanistan for a month, he was killed when his convoy was ambushed. He's survived by his wife and young son.
