Army Recommends SNAP for Soldiers Struggling to Make Ends Meet

Inflation is crushing everyone in this country, including our troops.

These individuals are already underpaid, so the rise in prices has been particularly difficult for them.

What is the Army’s solution?

Start collecting food stamps!

Shameful

Sergeant Major Michael Grinston, on ideas as to how troops can deal with inflation, stated, “With inflation affecting everything from gas prices to groceries to rent, some Soldiers and their families are finding it harder to get by on the budgets they’ve set and used before.

“Soldiers of all ranks can seek guidance, assistance, and advice through the Army’s Financial Readiness Program.”

The program to which he referred recommends that soldiers apply to SNAP for help.

Imagine putting your life on the line for the country and being told you now qualify for food stamps.

Republicans were livid.

Rep. Hill (R-AR) stated, “Let’s think about that. Now, the Biden administration has not gotten the national defense authorization bill through the Senate yet.

“Something where we voted for a pay increase and for benefit increases for our men and women in uniform — we need to take care of them first and foremost.

“Now what hypocrisy to turn around and say that we’re going to what, I’ve read to be, $560 billion of student loan debt next fiscal year, ballooning the deficit. So, it’s typical of the Biden administration’s mismanagement on both sides of the ledger and making a bad decision, an immoral decision to forgive student loan debt — a problem created by President Obama, I might add as a footnote — and, in turn, suggesting our men and women in uniform go on food stamps because they’re not adequately being taken care of by the Army. It’s wrong on both counts.”

He was far from alone, as this was a very popular subject for Republicans on Monday.

We give people who took out loans and do not want to pay them back $10,000 in loan forgiveness, but we cannot get higher wages for our troops approved?

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

  4. This is their move to own the Army, not to allow any of the military to be independent of the government. Another move of the Marxist theory! That way it also insures that the military must be on their side to confiscate guns from The People! Please Vote against this & if you have family & friends in the Army please don’t let them fall fir this entrapment!

  5. I qualified for food stamps the first two years I was in the Air Force in 1964 and 1965. Our commander told us he would court martial any of us that put in for the food stamps. I was able to find a part time job to make ends meet. Biden has our country so messed up.

  6. I think that it’s shameful to expect American military families to rely on SNAP. When I was in the military, my family tried to use the Navy Exchange, as at the time it was less expensive than other options, but has obviously been watered down since my time in the service. A novel idea is this. Shut down the southern border and use the money saved that is being spent on illegal immigrants to help those serving the nation, along with our own homeless.

    1. Amen. Send them back to where they came from and the military could get a raise instead of paying their housing and food.

  7. SNAP has a budget too. That jerk is wanting illegals on SNAP too. Pay those that serve in the military, like you upped the pay for your minions at Congress this year. Those idiots helping destroy this country are the ones that should be on SNAP and find out what it means to struggle.

  8. This has been a problem since the 60s, I don’t see any republicans trying to fix this. They have held power many times since then and never did one thing.

    1. Because the Democrats won’t support military or police or anything that makes sense!!!! They are stupid that’s why they voted in a guy that has dementia

  9. This is nothing new. Back in 1966 the Readers Digest ran an article reporting on the fact that about half of the married enlisted military personnel were eligible for welfare. The article reported that they could apply through the various programs like Navy Relief or whatever branch of the service they were in. The military pay rates are not adjusted for married personnel. Because the food and housing are provided for single personnel, the married need to accept the responsibility on their own. That is why so many military families have to have their spouse working any job they can find near the base.

  10. SNAP – good grief – these people are defending this country and you want them to rely on food stamps? You should be ashamed! This administration is devil’s spawn and control is their only agenda and they don’t give a rip how they get it. Sick. If Dems keep control in November, things will only get worse while it is hard to believe it could actually get worse…….If they lose control, at least their fraud-filled legislation can be stopped from making things worse than they already are. People who hate Trump could care less if this country is completely destroyed because all they can see it hatred and that hatred is fueled by Biden and his puppeteers. Those in power believe that most citizens are stupid so will believe whatever media spouts even when it is obvious that their messages continue to be lies that damage our democracy…Biden’s laying blame on MAGA Americans is pure crap as it is the Dems that are the real threat. Using our Constitution and Bill of Rights as rtoilet paper becomes more obvious every day as they manipulate this counry into becoming the East Germany, Russias, or North Korea of the future. With them in control, by the 2024 election, there will be nothing to vote for as they will have taken control of every facet of our voting processes which will insure American will become a one-party system, a dictatorship from which we will never recover.

  11. Come fight and die for your country…We will give you food stamps to get by…We will also spend thousands treating transgender military…Sound like a fair deal to you ???
