Maybe you got special consideration as a soldier. Perhaps enlisted men
and women got a special deal because it wouldn't be easy for them to
deal with credit issues overseas ... But as far as I know, the rest of
us were not entitled to any free reports unless we were denied credit
or employment (as I posted earlier) or if there was a state law
specifying we were not to be charged. There have been some state laws
on the books prior to this past year.
