[QUOTE=Soundgod;1077097]We both could and we would agree and disagree on various line items.
As for SoG being “self supporting”, does the USG have anything that’s truly self supporting?
And that’s all I’ll say about that.[/QUOTE]
The non appropriated fund facilities have to be self supporting per federal law or they have to be closed.
The only other recreation funds within the US Military are the funds given to the commands. These funds are only a few dollars per year per member. And again, that goes to that troops individual unit. Those few dollars are used for unit functions (hail and farewell functions, unit picnics for the troops and their families, etc). The total alloted per troop, per month, is less than the number of singles in my wallet as I type. Other than that all recreation funds must be self generated by the facility. I personally know about the troop unit recreation allowances becasue I ran the fund as part of our supply department my last 5 years on active duty. It was worse to loose accounting of that fund than if I lost accountability for one of our vehicles from the motor pool.
So in short, yes, SoG is “self supporting”.
