Danger Pay - Iraq
- Frederick B.
- Tuesday, 24 June 2014
You told us that you were not going to send Troops to Iraq.
Now I hear that you have changed your mind!
I have heard also that those being sent will not receive "Danger Pay"!
I know from your past preformance you will do what you very well choose and forget the rest of the Nation.
As an American Citizen and retired member of our Armed Forces I insist that they receive Danger Pay!!!!!
You and your associates spend your workdays lounging in the comfort of your offices and have fine meals. At the
end of your day you all go to the comfort of your homes, have a good evening meal and relax while these men and women place their selves in harms way for you and the Nation.
Any American Military Person who puts a foot ashore in the middle is at extreme risk and deserves "Danger Pay"! I think the proper term is "COMBAT PAY".
Yes, I know you have enjoyed your travel to visit our troops in the middle east and you can tell us that you have been there and seen them. You never ventured beyond the shadow of Air Force One. Should you have eaten with them I am sure they knocked their selves out to provide you far surpassing what the troops normally receive.
If we must go your route then place the draft in place again.
I expect to see an immediate change in the performance of the VA.
