How about why inmates are given better food than soldiers on deployment. My s/o was in for 16 years. He fought in Desert Storm and in OIF 1.
Rumors have it that after Desert Storm the military had a surplus of rations still in theater, it was deemed too expensive to move them all back to storage, so they offered them to the prison systems and were told that the rations were not adequate for the inmates. How does this seem possible that men and women who fight and sometimes die for their country are fed food that isn't good enough for our worst in society
oops this would be more in line for Active than veteran affairs, sorry
