No Breakfast For You Private


This is how the military treats our soldiers? WTH???

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.

But let's give the Muslim Brotherhood, unions, banks and welfare parasites all they want, eh Obama?

Our daughter just started her second deployment, arrived at BAF last Friday; guess she'll really need our care packages now...

UPDATE
There is some word now that the DOD is doing this in preparation of troop reductions. They are "streamlining the logistics process" for these bases and troops will be served MRE's. I wonder if they'll streamline ammo too.

Don't you sometimes get the feeling that this president is deliberately encouraging a backlash?

What the hell is the reason behind this? Please don't say it's to save money, I'm out of duct tape and my exploding head would scatter throughout the house.

Heads should roll.

Some REMF came up with this. You know that the person responsible never had a shot fired at them in anger.

REMF. Yes, the very phrase I was thinking of.

'Breakfast: the most important meal of the day'.

Unless, apparently, you're putting your @$$ on the line in service to your country.
