27. I'm confused. They get PAID even more to be in combat, so why didn't they pay their bills?

Am I missing something? The troops get extra money in their checks when they are deployed overseas... and the money is available to their spouses by direct deposit, to pay the bills. I have no idea why they'd be foreclosed on if they're getting their money that we pay them as taxpayers. They get free health care, schooling, discounts on tons of things, and a wage that much higher than many other people get.

Seriously. Why didn't they pay their mortgages? We had a deployed neighbor whose wife basically let the house go to shit while he was overseas in Iraq. Had weeds up to your waste, and the place was filthy. When he got back they were already in foreclosure, and she dumped his stuff out and moved on. The other neighbors, where the wife was deployed and making great money, decided to just let their payments go and short sell so they could buy a bigger house where she was transferred (they buy the new house before the shit hits the fan on the old one.) So forgive me if I'm skeptical that they deserve any more consideration. Their spouses are at home managing the money that comes in...
