Who supports the troops?

Their mothers and families and friends do. But someone 'very high up' who has the authority to issue orders to them may not. I don't know if this story is true; I do know that it should be vigorously investigated by the Congress, which has been asked to do so much on the basis of 'supporting and protecting' those same troops. Especially the part about general officers wearing the Pinnacle gear while lower ranks are ordered to abandon that which they purchased with their own funds.

Also, someone with more legal smarts than I should quickly talk to SGLI about the precise nature of the restrictions and conditions on the $400,000 'death benefit' to GIs. That 'could jeopardize' in there looks awful damn fishy and an awful lot like justification for pressure that can't quite be backed up by facts.
