When Budget Cuts Go Wrong
July 18, 2014 by Jake Butler
Let’s face it – sometimes you just need a good laugh, especially in this line of work! Whether you’re an E-1 or an officer, budget cuts have a way of affecting everyone in the service. Below we’ve compiled some of the most telling examples of military budget cuts ever photographed. Enjoy!
When budget cuts hit, you’ll just have to do more with less.
You may have to get creative with repairs.
Like when the gun mount breaks. Not in this man’s Air Force!
Then you start to think maybe NASCAR is onto something.
But however bad it gets, just be glad you’re not these guys:
Consider yourself lucky to have modern equipment at all.
And at least we’ve got enough guns to go around…
If we don’t, then maybe you’ll get to train in advanced forms of warfare.
Budget cuts even affect the robots among us.
Airmen might tell you it’s hard to keep the fairway green when you have to cut water usage.
Sleeping quarters might have to tighten up.
You may have to pay your own toll fare.
But if things get worse, you can always hitch a ride with the locals.
They might even lend you an alternative mode of transportation.
And lastly, let’s not forget about the VA. Captain America knows.
