DOD To Shut Down ALL Military Commisaries

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


These commissaries offer our enlisted men and their families commodities at a discounted price. Some of the lower grade enlistees qualify for food stamps. This is supposed to be a benefit to the men and women that serve. It is so disgusting to me that this would even be considered. I guess the DOD needs to spend billions of more dollars on war. The only place that the Pentagon can find to trim is in benefits for our soldiers.

Jesus!! I need to go look at funny cat pictures or something. I am getting so depressed.

Defense officials have reportedly asked the Defense Commissary Agency to develop a plan to close all U.S. commissaries — about three-fourths of its stores, according to a resale community source familiar with details of a meeting with representatives of the Joint Staff and Pentagon comptroller’s office.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the meeting was held within the last few weeks and was part of preparations for the fiscal 2015 DoD budget request that is due out on February.

That DeCA has been asked to prepare such a draft plan does not mean commissaries would close anytime soon. Even if such a plan was included in the defense budget request for fiscal 2015 — almost a year away — it would have to be approved by Congress, where many lawmakers would oppose it.

The Military Coalition, comprised of more than 30 military and veterans advocacy groups sharing a common agenda, also would fiercely oppose such a plan.

      Oh……I see. So it was okay for them to shut down the coms in Alabama 10 years ago. Just as long as they didn’t shut down YOURS.

      Now YOUR time has come….and suddenly …it’s JUST started happening.

      Blind, blind, Blind. You people have been blind for years….and now you want to blame it ALL on Obama……

      Wonder why you just now started paying attention?
