    Its more efficient and cost effective to hire civilians for these types of jobs, plus it reduces the heavy turnover you have with military personnel.

    That is not true lol... we had to clean an unnecessary amount and have inspections too.

    You are right, It seems the military is just doing jobs that are "Militarized". I suppose one day they will just hire civilians to do all the killing and those Marines can go back to being really bad ass cooks. OOOHH RAHH!

    LMAO, little mints on the pillow each day.

    The Air Force does have nice facilities though.

    It's mostly because paying someone $10 an hour to cook is cheaper than sending someone through military training. They just waste the training money that could be better used elsewhere.

    We did get our chow hall trays picked up from the table though. The Army bases you had to bring your tray up and give it to the dishwashers and there was no CNN it was horrible. :(

    take your pick, google "money spent on contracts in Iraq war" it doesn't just cost $10 bucks an hour. I would rather spend the money for training for our military and have them come out of the service with more skills than just killing machines, is there a lot of demand for contract killers in the USA?

    The army has the lowest recruiting standards but here is something that you may not believe which is true. The smartest guys end up in the infantry.

    The Army was much more dirty and destructive. I maintained fire alarm and suppression systems so we would always get called to the army barracks because they broke something. (discharging fire extinguishers, damaging sprinkler heads, disabling smoke alarms so they could smoke...)

    I agree with you, in the Civil Engineering squadron we had a good mix of civilians and military. The civilians were awesome because they are permanent personnel and know the base and systems better than anyone. Turnover is a big issue and civilians alleviate that.

    I generally ate them cold. The heaters had too many other great uses to be wasted heating pseudo-food.

    Sure, there's shitbags everywhere. Most veterans aren't in those situations because they like being on the dole though. That seems like a much more complex subject.
