The military spent $773,000 to renovate a building and place a combination KFC/Taco Bell on the base.
Additionally, $683,000 was spent sprucing up a cafe where troops could buy ice cream and Starbucks coffee.
Explained the base’s chief:
Because GTMO is an isolated and remote duty location with no access to an off-base community, all services must be provided on station… The installation benefits from expenditure of funds through retention and readiness improvements, as well as long-term facility sustainment, restoration and modernization.
I wonder if it would have been cheaper to place a combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell there?
