Tell that to all the crews that died over the years because they didn't keep the weeds down.
Like I said, not all the bases contract it. Some of the overseas bases use military personnel, as do some of the US bases.
Tell 'em what? That I don't believe the DOD spend $87 million on sprayers for weeds? Uh... I'm not sure I see your point... but another nice
attempt... invoking an emotive argument to diffuse and debunk. Bravo... well played.
It's all good Sir. You've done your part to try and convince me. I remain unconvinced. I'm sure we can both live with that.
You do know that the government always gets overcharged for almost everything they buy, right? And if you were familiar with the military, you would
know that every base has a on going area beautification going on a daily basis. Some times it is extra duty for those who have screwed up but at other
times entire units are tasked.
Also, many who serve don't really take care of lawnmowers, sprayers and weed wackers. Their line of reasoning is that if it is broke, they won't
have to do it. When I was a Sergeant, it was at this point I gave them pruning shears or scissors. The job had to get done after all.
They usually took care of the equipment after that but new people would come, the old timers would leave and we'd be back at square one again.
