Oklahoma: Allegations Of No Food Prompt Request For Army Investigation
OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma congresswoman placed a formal request Thursday for the Army to investigate allegations that members of the National Guard's 45th Infantry Brigade have not been regularly fed.

Howard Fleshman contacted Eyewitness News 5 after receiving an e-mail from his daughter, Kristy Fleshman, 26, who said she and her fellow soldiers were working up to 10-hour shifts in desert heat without any food.

Specifically, the e-mail read: Hey Dad, I have an issue I think I need the family's help on. Someone decided to quit serving all the soldiers at the compounds lunch.

He said he normally gets an e-mail each weekend from his daughter, who is stationed at Camp Bucca, the largest U.S. military prison in Iraq. However, he said the message he received on Tuesday left him dumbfounded.

1. Damn, don't they read your email before you send them?
We can't give the Army a black eye! :sarcasm:

2. I was going to post this with a link to the video, but I couldn't
figure out how to do it. So, let me get this straight. If these kids aren't killed by bombs or worse, they now face starvation and dehydration in the 140 degree heat? What next? The military makes them grow their own food?
