Oh, hell no.

This article on CNN makes me outraged! It’s one thing to charge fliers for carrying on extra baggage, but do not, DO NOT charge our troops going overseas for a deployment. It’s not like they don’t have enough to worry about, but now when they get to the airport they may have to shell out money? Come on! Our men and women don’t need to rethink taking particular items with them when leaving their homes, their families and friends, and their lives for 3-15 months. They’re doing us a service; you’d think we could do one for them.

Edit (8/14): If the link above isn’t working (it was giving me a blank page this morning) try reading it here.
