Soldiers having a holiday in Iraq?

While in Iraq our troops are living in tents on bases which are constantly bombarded. On the bright side these troops have better living conditions than they do at home.

The Commons defence committee says repairs take too long, standards of service are "unacceptably poor", and the situation is exacerbated by "an alarming lack of recognition at senior levels that these problems are more than minor difficulties". Unless significant improvements are made soon, service men and women will be forced to live in sub-standard accommodation "for many years to come", the cross-party committee says.

The government is doing everything it can to damage the armed forces. Is it any wonder that many leave the armed services because the government does not value them? The government should get their act together and give the military what it needs including decent living conditions for them and their families.
