17 bases in Afghanistan have suspended serving troops breakfast; more bases will stop on Feb. 1
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today wrote Army Secretary John McHugh to express “growing concern” regarding Army actions that have ended service of breakfast to American troops serving at 17 US military outposts in Afghanistan.
Braley has also been informed by the Army that this policy will be expanded to more locations in Afghanistan beginning on February 1st.
“I am troubled that the Army would deny any deployed troops three meals per day, regardless of force size,” Braley wrote. “These men and women put their lives on the line every day to protect the very freedoms we cherish. The exhaustive mental and physical labor that is required by soldiers to fight in harsh and unforgiving conditions is tremendous. We shouldn’t deny our troops something as fundamental as a proper meal.
“I am positive that with the logistical mastery the Army has exhibited in combat operations around the world, you can logistically administer the procedure of serving breakfast every day.”
The issue was brought to Braley’s attention by concerned family members of Iowa soldiers serving in Afghanistan.
Considering the state of 'Education' here now, our troops would only need a rinse! Revisionist History shows what GOV. wants shown, and either down-plays or eliminates what they DON'T want shown.
This whole scenario makes me ill. The whole CONgress needs to be tossed out, along with the Usurper In Chief. Impeachment would do no good, since it won't take them OUT and AWAY, it's just a slap on the wrist.
Vicky, you had better do some more checking. I thought that was who
you were talking about.
The man was a crook. Medicare among other things were passed.
It was just another ponzi scheme like SS. He pushed the big government
I'm with you VICKY, the idea had had for a 5,ooo,ooo man march at any other time would be good, but we need ROAD signs showiing KING OBAMA, in one picture, with kids,OBAMA-YOUTH, and on the otherside, showing HITLER surrounder with kids,(HITLER YOUTH). Combine them on a ROAD sign!! Caption,hmmmmm, 'NO DIFFERENCE!! A FACIST IS A FACIST,and knows no color!!'. I wish I had the money to do that!! GOD BLESS US!! SEMPER-FI !! Larry K.Parent,Naples,FL.
Vicky, could you establish what president johnson you are referring to?
I'M with you there is no room for stupid talk we have an enemy out there within and outside.
REMEMBER THIS...............GOD BLESS AMERICA THAT MEANS ALL AMERICANS
Those men work every day. Seven days a week. It's not a '9 to 5' job. They VOLUNTEERED for that job, and mostly knew what they were letting themselves in for. NOT BEING FED WAS NOT included. I don't know about you, but I think I'd WALK OFF THE JOB, citing BREACH OF CONTRACT. If they (gov.) can eliminate BREAKFAST, shown to be the MOST important meal of the day, what's to stop them from dropping dinner and supper? (Not cost effective to FEED volunteers. Let them bring their own.) Or is this an effort to convert our Soldiers to Islam? Or Comminism? (Think our way, and get food.)
