    And a million other fucking useless, mandatory events occurring on a FOB that everyone seems to have the time to attend, I seriously begin questioning life. That, along with seeing brass driving 2008 vehicles with leather interiors/sound systems inside of the wire (and having soldiers wash them :hsugh:), renovated TOCs with stained wood, tiled DFAC floors...

    Isn't there just something wrong with all of this?

    Bullshit. How about paying Enlisted Personel more, and fuck these stupid "cultural events"? If the Wives want that shit (I'm one and quite frankly, I don't, I can go out into town to do that crap if I'm really interested) then they can do fundraisers to gather the money for them.

    That isn't unique to Iraq, it has taken place in every major operation. Almost every major war movie makes fun of it at one point or another. The beach BBQscene in Apocaplypse Now sums it up perfectly.

    in t-bones and beer and turned the LZ into a beach party.
    The more they tried to make it just like home, the more they
    made everybody miss it."

    Different money is all I can tell you. You can cut corners all you want in your duty section but if you think you'll feel it in your back pocket, ever, you're wrong.:ugh2:

    All of those awesome things the OP listed cost less than a four hour eight engine power run on a B-52.:ugh:
