I met a couple of AF guys at a party, it seems Air force research laboratory general Bedke has authorized a field trip (5 days) for 40 air force cadets, civilian employees and contractors to Gettysburg. These cadets will be on temporary duty and will receive $103 for lodging 54for meals 157 total PER DAY!!!
It figures the air force would send troops there. The last time a bullet was fired in gettysburg was 140+ years ago:)

This is a true story.

my son is on his 3rd tour in Iraq. I can't believe that the Air Force is sending people on vacation in this economy. If this waste of money upsets you as much as me call your congressman.

I just sent a letter to general curtis M. Bedke of AFRL asking him if it is warranted sending people on vacation with government dollars.

Well, I check and you are right!!! Check out this web site. I should have joined the Air Force! I did two tours in the war zone and I'm getting ready for a 3rd. Why would General Curtis M. Bedke of AFRL sanction this? How can he justify sending Air Force cadets to Gettysburg for a week, while the rest of us are fighting a war? Besides that, how can we afford to do this in these times? where is the money coming from?
