Shave and a Hair Cut, Two Bits

Italy’s military is no longer obligatory, so the free haircuts and shaves the officers and enlisted personnel used to enjoy is also gone. Cadets will now have to pay “for barber service along with tuition, accident insurance, books and all personal needs.”

I don’t know about you, but the thing that strikes me is not that the Italian military won’t get coiffed for free anymore, but that they have to buy accident insurance. They’re in the military, right? What the hell constitutes an accident when you’re in the military?
