    That's the most effed up thing that I have ever heard. EVER

    That's so far beyond the pale as to unbelievable.

    I hate to sound cynical but that's just so wrong, could someone provide some sort of independent verifiction.

    I'll spend bucks in a heartbeat as soon as I'm sure that I'm not being screwed.

      The law now in effect was set in place to prevent troops from double-dipping, said Lt. Col. Rose-Ann Lynch, a Pentagon spokeswoman.

      "Deployments aside, if any servicemember is in a military hospital, they are getting meals paid for by the military. If they were regularly collecting BAS, Basic Allowance for Subsistence — the monies received monthly for personal subsistence — they are obligated to pay for the hospital meals. If the servicemember is not receiving BAS, they will not be charged for the meals.

      Now if the BAS fully covers the cost of the meals then I'm less angry. If not then this is wrong. Anyone know the answer?

      btw Google is the answer to most of my questions, that's where i found this link.
