There's hardly anything more important to a GI than mail call. There's hardly anything worse than this...
The Army said Friday that it has opened an investigation into the recent discovery of 4,500 letters and parcels — some dating to May 2006 — at Walter Reed that were never delivered to soldiers.Time was, Army mail was handled by soldiers, members of the Adjutant General Corps, who took this stuff seriously. Now it's civilians who take it for what they can get until they get caught.
And it fired the contract employee who ran the mailroom.I was trained as a 71Foxtrot, and worked as one in Germany before I left for the Jolly Green Jungle.
I would have been courts-martialed and sent to the stockade.
I hate what they're doing to my Army.
