My son is career military and because he is an Officer and Fighter pilot, his situation is much different than an enlisted personnel...what makes the military different then the civilian world is long multiple deployments in combat zones and the strain that places on families

When the Republican Party slashed the Farm Aid Bill and SNAP, they didn't realize that a large number of enlisted personnel with families would be directly impacted...I am sure Luanne's husband Jim understands that better than all of us

As other posters have stated, Government Military Contracts are a cesspool of waste...however in many Congressional districts, the largest civilian employer is the Federal Government awarding military contracts...funny how that changes the conversation

To understand how massive this issue is, visit the Pentagon
