DOD Cost Cutting Measures Include Feeding Deployed Soldiers Only Twice A Day

Now that my son in law is back from Afghanistan, our whole family can breath easier. We can also feed him breakfast. As incredible as it sounds, he only got two “hots” while serving in the Middle East. This is how we treat the most powerful fighting force for good in the world? The food care packages that our family and friends mailed to Afghanistan helped fill the void made by a government so detached that it failed (and continues to fail) to feed its own soldiers. And people don't understand why soldiers return home feeling abandoned by their country after serving faithfully overseas? Oy.

    There just isn’t enough food for all our soldiers, not with Mooch in the WH!

    But seriously, this is totally insane! (How long before the gubmint charges the soldiers for their meals?)

    Bless God that he is back safe. Our daughter-in-law has orders for the very last –and most dangerous–tour.
