To followup on my earlier post, the Commander at Buka, Iraq, said they will start letting troops get MRE's (Meals Ready to Eat), starting tomorrow. Plus, for the next week, they will give box lunches to military personnel who ask.
In other words, it was true our kids in the miliarty were NOT getting food. They had been going without for 10 to 14 hours while on paterol. He blamed changes to the food schedule.
So, if you get an e-mail from your kid in Iraq saying the military is not feeding them..... Be sure to raise cane about it because it is probably true.
