    No more hot breakfasts for our troops in Afganistan...is what Andrea Tantaros reported yesterday on FOX asking for US corporations for some suggestions or help. This reportedly is because of defense cutbacks. How much did BO and family spend on Hawaiian vacation? How much will it cost us to feed, school and provide medical care for 11 million illegal felons? And our troops in harms way have to give up hot breakfast? I have given to wounded warriors, disabled vets and church groups. I will continue to do so but all other solicitations from non profits, no matter how worthy will get a note saying because of higher taxes, obama care and his general policies..there is only so much disposable income to go around. Sorry, but you'll have to go to obama for your donation. ed nichols

    If true despicable

    When i was in the Air Force if I wanted a hot breakfast I would just heat up my inflight lunch on the manifold of an MD3 before we took off

    You had to watch it close the cardboard box would catch on fire

    Do you have a link, and maybe some quotes? Or is this interpretation?

    Let's be careful of what the media reports - including Fox. My nephew is currently deployed at a FOB (godspeed, D) in Astan and RAVES about the chow hall.

    Get a lot of info on it, use google Simply type in "Troops breakfast in Afghanistan". Naturally the Pentagon has a wet weather spin on the reasoning.

    Hard to believe. The armed forces know better than anyone of the importance of good nutrition. The cost of one smart bomb would feed a lot of soldiers ....
