Perks for army generals

December 18, 2012

I QUOTE from a report which appeared recently in The Washington Post.

“The Pentagon announced Friday that it will examine whether its generals and admirals receive too many perks and said that they should receive more ethics training earlier in their careers. Dempsey also recommended that the joint chiefs take a closer look at the staffing support, travel privileges and other prerequisites provided to senior officers.

“By the time commanders achieve four-star rank, they often travel in corporate- style jets, with their own cooks, drivers and dozens of aides who perform personal errands.”

This may be of interest to your readers.
