  •  AND--a large percentage of active duty military (3+ / 0-)

    families are also on WIC too and Food stamps!

    Here is news from Alaksa

    This is from 2011, but since the Pentagon doesn't keep track of how many military families are on foodstamps, then I guess this number shall have to do
    http://www.times-herald.com/... were 14,000 military members on food stamps in 2000. I am sure that number has gone up some since then.

    Your recruiter by the way never says, join the military and get on WIC and Foodstamps! But go to any base website here or overseas and you notice that WIC is offered on the sites with a pay scale of eligibility and all.

    Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
