MILITARY NO LONGER SERVING BREAKFAST TO TROOPS??????

FREE ZONE MEDIA CENTER  WFZR


For those of you who haven't heard, our elected officials believe that our military who are deployed overseas don't have a need for breakfast anymore, and our troops found out the hard way they were being denied such effective today.

"There are signs posted on the chow halls [saying that breakfast will not be provided], then once inside, I asked the girl that checks the cards if we were getting no HOT meals and just cereal etc or nothing, and she told us no, the halls will be locked, and they were. Most soldiers found out by showing up this morning and finding the chow halls locked. We got a days notice, no MRE's, nothing. It would make sense to cut the LUNCH chow out or at least down to just cold meat sandwiches, cause when on mission, most don't ever seen lunch. That Day's Notice, was just a sign on the chow hall. If you didn't go to a chow hall yesterday or hear, you were surprised. I had grabbed stuff last night, apples, oranges, v8 and snacks, but a lot of soldiers didn't."

'In another message, the soldier explained that defense budget cuts in the bill recently passed to avoid the fiscal cliff are apparently the reason that breakfast will no longer be served. As an American who believes that our troops deserve the full support of the country they are fighting to protect, I must adamantly express my disapproval for this "no breakfast" policy and urge Congressman Wolf to change it. I do not know if this policy is widespread throughout Afghanistan or if it is only affecting a few bases, but to be blunt - one base is one too many. The soldiers in this particular unit are combat engineers -- it is their job to go before the infantry to clear the route of IEDs. How can they be expected to have the sharpness of mind and strength of body required for such a dangerous & demanding job if they are not provided a solid meal at the beginning of the day? Also, what message is Congress sending our soldiers by taking away a such staple of everyday life--breakfast? It's a message the conveys a lack of support, awareness, & gratitude for the dangerous, sacrificial work that they are doing. And that is an absolutely unacceptable message for our brave soldiers to receive.'

  1. 'In another message, the soldier explained that defense budget cuts in the bill recently passed to avoid the fiscal cliff are apparently the reason that breakfast will no longer be served.'

    That should tell you enough to know right there that this is a lie. The agreements to avoid the "fiscal cliff" didn't include ANY spending cuts; Spending cuts was what the Republicans wanted included in the agreement but finally caved in on so none were included.

    I have also seen some comments around the web that this picture dates back to 2011, but I haven't found any proof on that part yet.

  7. there are over 30,000 people at basis in afghanistan. A base this size is not going to be turned over to afhgnan forces any time soon. and yet, it is true that they do not have breakfast. They are now making it country wide there. I have a man on the ground. Where do you get your conspiracy information from! The governmnent has not made this public because they don't want families and the public to know. This does not apply to just a few turn over bases. Shame on this goverment and liberal media for not digging in and reporting the real news!
