Matthews Urges Congress To Do More For US Troops....

Rocker Dave Matthews has urged the U.S. government to do more for traumatized soldiers coming home from Iraq.A recent task force survey found that more than one-third of troops and veterans suffer from problems such as traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.And Matthews is so unhappy at the findings he has asked fans to sign a petition, which has 23,000 signatures so far, that asks Congress to investigate the claims.He says, "It just struck me as a profound injustice that someone who had given so much of themselves and clearly showed such a quality of personality that the gratitude we're showing them was basically a dishonourable discharge".
