It seems the CSM for forces in Afghanistan has decided that getting to visit Pizza Hut and having an occasional ice cream at Dairy Queen is too good for the troops that have to spend a year of their lives in a place where they can't have sex, drink alcohol or see their families. According to CSM Hall eating in the dining facility should be good enough. Hmmmmmm. What do I think about that? "Not so much". I say bring back the days when you could drink beer in a war zone; but then . . . that's just me. Read CSM Hall's explanation in "Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) Facilities" on the ISAF website.
