A few months back, our men and women stationed overseas in Afghanistan lost a little piece of home when the U.S. military announced they were closing most fast food operations on the bases in Bagram and Kandahar. But now that the reins have been handed over from Gen. McChrystal to Gen. Petraeus, Stars & Stripes is reporting that our soldiers may get their Whoppers back!
The publication put the question to Petraeus: Will Burger King, Pizza Hut and other ousted food outlets be allowed to return?
And while the General didn’t reply directly to Stars & Stripes, his spokesman reported back that “Gen. Petraeus said with a smile that ‘all options are on the table.'”
That’s not exactly a crystal-clear answer, but it’s much different than the “This is a war zone — not an amusement park” line the military was giving back in early April.
