Allen West: The Obama administration should be ashamed of this National embarrassment.

They stand guard upon Freedom’s rampart. They answer the call to secure the blessings of liberty for our Republic. Their families shed tears as they say the words that could be eternal: good-bye. They are the best amongst us and carry on the legacy of those who volunteered to stand at Concord Bridge.

But they are also apparently despised and disregarded by this Obama administration — which should be ashamed of this latest national embarrassment.

As reported by Becket Adams at The Blaze, “Roughly $104 million worth of food stamps were redeemed at military commissaries in 2013, according to the latest data from the Defense Commissary Agency. Military families used food stamps to purchase milk, cheese, meat and bread at the military grocers, CNN Money reported.”

“I’m amazed, but there’s a very real need,” said Thomas Greer, spokesman for Operation Homefront, a group dedicated to assisting soldiers in financial straits. Food stamp participation in the U.S. military saw a sharp increase in 2008, during the worldwide financial meltdown, and it has risen every year since.

Just to remind you, the Obama administration has considered closing Military Commissaries.
