    I wanna know who the asshole in DC is that is responsible for this bullshit....

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/01/07/john.doe.letters/index.html

    THIS is almost as fucked up as what happened in 2004/2005 when RumsFAILED got caught with his dick in the door, having the letters of condolence sent out with a rubber stamp.

    If it's an idea that the prick known as Robert Gates is responsible for, I hope that the military launches him off the deck of a carrier, no jet attached.

    Except for your flaming liberal tantrum.

    I agree with you!

    I agree that the form was awful. I'm impressed though that the DOD is notifying families of groups like Soldier's Angels and offshoots. How many wounded need the laptops, software, etc.? The government doesn't provide them, but the donors of these groups will.

    How many grieving families need the support of others? Hundreds? Thousands? There are services beyond what the government provides, including mental health supports that may be superior and needed.

    Yes, I blame them for the SNAFU, but not the intent. Kudos too for getting the apology out before it hits.

    Listen motherfucker......I told you......I'm not a liberal.

    And....the reason I'm so pissed? I used to be a member of the CACO Team for the Navy. CACO stands for Casualty Assistance Calls Officer, the people in uniform that show up on your doorstep to tell you that your family member is dead.

    This is totally uncalled for. When I was a member of that team, we had 24 hours to notify, NO FUCK UPS!

    Thank you for your service. I don't think from what I read they were notifying families of casualties, rather services? If I read it wrong, my apologies.

    This sounds like the book "Catch 22" where PFC Wintergreen had form letters that were sent out. You crossed out the wrong desciption like father, son, daugther etc. died, was wounded, lost in action etc.

    At least that was a book. I guess if it can be FUBARED but the gov, it will be.

    Sorry, but the bueuracrats really don't give a crap about the person serving. It's all forms and nice little processes that have to be done.

    Well Annie, either way, getting a letter saying that your relative is dead or missing is a notification.

    Either way, casualty or service, it was still really fucked up to do.

    first there was this:

    "Me? I fix bikes for kids around the neighborhood (over 10 years as a bike mechanic), mow lawns for neighbors, and generally try to be as pleasant as possible, when I can."


    and then there was this:

    "Listen motherfucker."

    Well......if I'm talking about things where people are looking for good stuff, I'm nice kind and gentle.

    When I've got people like Licking Ass telling me stuff that I know is wrong? I respond accordingly.

    From Walter Reed to this FUBAR, there have been all too many screwups concerning our servicemen by this administration. Much of this has been caused by the policy of outsourcing jobs that our military should be doing themselves. That was the case at Walter Reed.
