    Uniform ????
    Are we going to be able to tell which side is which ?

    Maybe UPS should allow long beards and long hair and ponytails and handlebars......

    Beards will never be approved, but beyond that as long as people do their jobs I don't see it as a big deal.

    Have you not seen what any of our special forces guys look like while in theater?

    I don't think Johney was aware of his play on words-----"in theater" is another name for an overseas duty location.

    The picture you posted of the "Lone Survivor" of Operation Red Wings. The story is still in theaters. Not my favorite war movie, but definitely worth the time.

    That's pretty much my description in the winter. I'm a little more presentable in the summer----but not much.

    Despite earlier promises that no commissaries would be closed as a result of proposed pay and benefits cuts, a Pentagon official told lawmakers Wednesday that some closures might happen.

    You should really link to the story if you're going to post their copyrighted material word for word. Here let me help you:
    http://www.military.com/daily-news/2014/03/26/dod-some-us-commissaries-may-close-due-to-cuts.html

    So to sum up, only stateside commissaries are having some of their subsidies phased out. They will still operate tax and rent free. Ya, some of their prices might go up, but if a store can't stay in business running tax free and not paying rent maybe they should shut down.

    Seems like the thing you should be asking is why do we pay some military personnel so little that they need to shop at a commissary to begin with.

    Did you ever look at it as a perk........low commissary prices to those who served while the rest of us have to pay the high store prices ??? Looking at things only one way is the sign of a closed mind.

    Do crossword puzzles.....you are forced to think 3 or 4 different ways to solve them.

    DIDO---in addition to their base pay married enlisted get separate rations, which is money used to buy food.
