i wonder how and why things are the way they are here at fort polk, yet i know. i see so much frudulent corruption going on its sick. all this talk of budget budget budget, must cut spending. yet some people are riding in helicopters around post to travel to and fro, sick, get in the damn car and save some damn money...
also, why do we (my husband and i) have to pay 1506.00 for a run down mold infested home with one parking space? where as someone else in the same house but with a two car garage pays 850.00. in the real world there are laws against this, and i plan on making a ruckus....why should we live pay check to pay check? my insuarance is more then a damn car payment, my house payment is twice that of the house we have back home.
also, how is that so many people here have time to take friday off and play golf, yet my husband who does not play golf must sit in for those who miss their meetings? also, why are the women here allowing their children, i am talking toddlers to play and walk the streets unsupervised. i have seen children smear mud all over the mail boxes to the point my key got stuck in the box, i had to call in a work order. i have seen children crawl on cars that are not theirs. i have had my car hit with a football by kids playing in my yard in my driveway, yet there are fields to play in all over. why is it sometimes i go to the food court at 7:30 to eat and they are already closed? why are there so many accidents here. why do so many go to conferences and tdy when there is a lack of government spending? in my past experience, i dealt with conferences overseas and it is just one big party. it is drinking and cheating and hotel sex. i witnessed first hand and saw the behavior of men and women in the united states army on tax payers expensive getting drunk and cheating. i had a co worker actually get pregnant from a high ranking official from the pentagon who was married with two children, she busted his ass. i am sick of fort polk and there corrupt ways. i hate to throw names around but i am giving polk 6 more weeks to correct the behavior then i will make some comments to those of importance.
GET YOUR PEOPLE SQUARED AWAY FORT POLK. oh and to the civilian who emailed my husband telling him we could not take leave and she needed his schedule, i know all about you little girl. i know who you had an affair with two years ago. he has the same name as my husband and i know his wife, so if you dont want trouble shut your mouth and do your damn job.
my tolerance for the behavior at HQ is over and the rest of the individuals. this place is corrupt and backwards get it together.

DAMN! First off you complain too much and have a stick up your a** that needs to be taken out. You clearly like to control everything in life.
If you are making that much in BAH then your spouse is a high rank and you must be a dumb wife wearing your spouses rank. If you too are in the military they excuse that comment but its usually true. If you are not serving and your spouse is GET OVER IT AND SHUT UP! Go live off post and put that money to use. No its not fair but they give you that option. Do you realize you can buy an amazing brand new house for less then a grand a month! Your dumb for staying on post and paying that.
yes I agree more paretns should watch their children but how wonderful it is that we live in such a tight nit community where we can allow our kids to play outside.
Do you even have any kids?
If you want to change the world go be the president but come on stop worrying about stupid crap in life and just live it. Enojoy it while it lasts.
You sound like a spoiled brat!

In response, first your spelling is horendous. Also never will never have worn my husbands rank in fact this is the first time in nearly 18 yrs of his service have I been exposed to the military. Never been to a wives tea party or function. I have been to a few hail and farewells but they were my husbands and I count the number of ones and units I went to. 3rd group, 528th and 22nd oh and 1st/504th. So thats less then 5 in 17 yrs so blows your acusation out of the water. Next I have two degrees, a BA in History where I received Cum Luade and Phi Alpha Theta, as well as when I received that degree I had 286 passing college hours-that means enough for two degrees. Also have a Masters in History in which I received Summa Cum Laude. Next, we did not chose to come here to Fort Polk, but after 8 deployments in 9 years my husband was told this would be his break before retirement. He however would rather be deployed then stuck here at his lame job of meaningless nothing. So with that said, if I want to go online and vent about my current situation I will do so. Next, not sure how you are better then me when you actually read what I posted then took the time out of your busy day to respond. But thanks for the advice, I am sure I will carry your wisdom on my sleeve.
The whole reason I get on is in hopes of someone in charge here at Fort Polk to actually take a stand and make some major corrections, its not to belittle anyone. I am not trying to hurt anyones feelings I am simply stating the obvious. Things are are not the best. By that I see things that would not go over real well at other military installations. I see uniformed service members getting over on tax payers dime and I see a lot of misuse of spending and rank.
With that said, if I offend you dont read. However I am an adult and find comments refreshing.

Sounds to me like someone is regretting marrying the military.

did not marry into military however I helped pay his way through college at Texas A&M so he could get a degree, and yeah do regret marry into military. This was my second proposal, my first was to a Naval Academny Graduate who became a Seal, did not marry him for these reasons. The second time I was proposed to military was not in the plan, but here I am a military wife of 17 yrs and the stories and experience has held true to my initial reasons for not wanting a part of it.... so to your correction did not marry into military it married into me.....
