#1 I can kinda understand this. Especially if supplying the troops is difficult the last thing that the chain needs to add is "fluff".

However, a lot of these troops are on their 4-5th tours and increasing the hardship of a hardship tour is not conducive to keeping reenlistment rates up.

It is a fine line, but I get the impression that the PC brass are getting pressure from the PC political asshats on this and it will end up screwing over our troops. Hopefully I am wrong.

#2 next they will stop sending bullets since paintballs are lighter. I bet the big asshats in the brass have their liqour sent in regularly though
