I read that the U.S. military would be removing commercial restaurants on U.S. bases in Afghanistan, such has Burger King, Pizza Hut, and Dairy Queen. To a degree, I understand the point of view that it’s a mission, and the troops are there to fight. However, come on, if these men and women want to enjoy something other than mess hall food in a dusty and dangerous land when they aren’t getting shot at, why not let them enjoy a little slice of home when they need it?
Regarding the picture below, I thought it was ironic to see a large military transport plane like the C-17 transporting a Burger King truck. Is it going into battle with their tasteless chicken sandwiches?
