I know a guy who got court marshaled for "stealing" apparently unwanted items.

This is the fundamental problem with government spending in general; there's no accountability because you are spending other people's money. Meanwhile there are likely hundreds of stories aka Benghazi where additional expenditures to improve security are more than justified.

Same, same. Good friend of mine from my college ROTC program did the same (lieutenant colonel at the time of the crime). At the correctional facility at Camp Lejeune last I heard.

Wife and two kids. Shame.

Great post! I am sure some of this is unavoidable and some is avoidable and wasteful. NOBODY ever seems to discuss this.

There is waste everywhere to cut.

Then report to the OT. We must defend the legacy of Michael Jackson.

Why?

Cause I take up some random arse causes.

The naivety displayed on this board on a daily basis is and has always been a source of entertainment.

Thank you for that.

I haven't posted on the OT in months and not sure I want to start that again now.

About Michael Jackson, well he has some great music and I say that as a deaf man who has a cochlear implant but I'm not totally convinced he's innocent.

Nothing personal man.

I'm pretty sure this guy was overseas in the marines, but luckily ( ) the army took him in.

Surprising, I am well aware of everything you said, but can't really say a whole lot about it even though I would love to.

I will just say I have a client that is a military contractor (not a corporate contractor, an individual) that went over there to build some stuff for the military for a few years and got gov contracts and did fine for himself.

Here's the biggest problem:

Each department/command is given a budget for each fiscal year, if they don't spend ALL of that budget, whether they need it or not, the next time a budget is set, it is lower than before.

So they keep spending even of they don't need it to keep getting bigger and bigger budgets.

Oh but if that were the only problem.

But no, it's worse. There are Soldiers all over Afghanistan doing without stuff. All over, there are Soldiers with shitty conditions that could be upgraded. But they wont be upgraded because top dogs are too busy thinking up shite they want to spend money on that makes THEIR area more awesome.

Dude, if I could itemize the shite that is being spend on that has ZERO to do with the war effort and ZERO to do with making Joe's life better, you'd barf.

And you are just dealing with the cost of the item. Not even touching on the shipping (air from CONUS) or ground (sea to Pakistan then over land to Afghanistan) costs that are incurred. And we lease those 40 foot MILVANs.



Yes, you are dead on brother.

Stay low, stay safe, and get home soon.
