Re: “Let's make a deal

Do they pay sales tax on base? No. Does that mean less money for our local economy? Yes. Do they deserve this perk? Definitely. I grew up around the military overseas and here in the states. I know exactly what the great men and women of our military sacrifice and give up to protect not only this reporters freedom of speech, but also every other freedom we, as U.S. Citizens enjoy every day. My nephew is deploying to Afghanistan in less than 2 weeks. He is going to be put in harms way, not because he asked to, but because his President told him to and he will do it without hesitation. Not because of the belief that he should be there, but his belief that by doing so he is serving this great nation of ours. I'm curious as to whether or not this reporter has EVER done anything for the greater good of others on the level that our military does. Final thought. I wonder what our local economy and real estate market would be like if the military wasn't here.
