Now this, is truly insane.

READ this on #Military overspending, #afghanistan troops inhaling #toxins and a seeming lack of policy continuity (but yes, I'm sure with all the branches it's difficult). http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/07/11/us-usa-afghanistan-waste-idUSBRE96A06A20130711?feedType=RSS&feedName=worldNews

MEET #Obama appointed #katherinehammack , Assistant Secretary of the US Army (ASA) for Installations, Energy & Environment. It's part of her foremost job to protect and reduce environmental impact for the Army. Yes, the Army is extremely forward thinking on, as leader Hammack says "new army green"...and to ease the efforts of our troops, help the planet, and I'd guess, keep our troops safe from unnecessary exposure to toxins from their own un-eco overseas belch at #Taxpayers costs. HON Hammack has done great things which I support and follow. I want her to understand and remedy this offense on the health of our already taxed and belabored Helmand Province #afghanistan fighters and have them not have to fight the air they breathe, as well as the daily grind of battle and the fear of an IED at every step. AND, I want her to make sure this is not just fixed here, but is monitored and considered a priority in all #ConflictZones in which #US #Soldiers dedicate their lives ever day, and night.

FIND #katherinehammack on Facebook. You can't post on her page but you can message her here as I did: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Assistant-Secretary-of-the-United-States-Army-IEE/166739060035912?id=166739060035912&sk=info

THIS is what I said, but feel free to express YOUR feelings to the TOP person in charge of you spouse's, brother's, sister's, son's, daughter's, mother's, father's friend's or any other you care about's health and safety whilst they serve their country, both in Helmand Province #Afghanistan and in all #US military missions abroad:

"I have greatly respected what the military does for environmental discovery and advancement. I can imagine there is some infighting w/in the ranks on the level of importance, and communication and coordination issues on execution; but how does this happen? Would welcome an open dialogue... and a change for the soldiers in Helmand Province Afghanistan, currently inhaling toxins. #SOT

Thank you for reading, supporting out troops and keeping our leaders in check to respect the support they so deserve and that so, so many of us give them.

Best,

Beautiful!
Astronomers discover the true color of an exoplanet for the first time! Looks cozy, right? WRONG. Called HD 189773b, it's 1,000 degrees Celsius on its surface and it rains glass. Sideways. Read more: http://pops.ci/12rxZiH

Old story but GREAT and I'm insomniacly catching up on my Google+. Truly a Must Read. Vice News? Andrew Exum? Paintball? Hezbollah? Western Journos? Altogether now, wow, read it if you haven't already!

"...women simply can’t handle “anything,” and that in his experience, “You walk up to them with a issue, they freak out right away. They go nuts. They get mad. They get upset, just like that. They have no patience because it’s not in their nature. They don’t have love. They don’t have love.”
