Do they have access to boiled water?  Families could send them, oatmeal?  At least it is hot and stays with you for a bit...

This is outrageous BTW

I rarely have cooked breakfast, since fibre rich cereal is very healthy, easy and quick to prepare, etc.

Not too big a loss.

You're not in the miliary in that God-forsaken country burning calories - especially to stay warm this time of year... Where or not a "fiber rich" cereal is adequate for those of us stateside sitting on our rears is adequate is one thing, these are young men and women expending a lot of energy and the least we can provide them is three hot meals a day.

Ya.  And I bet these guys just choked down some high fiber cereal.  Not a big loss.

Napoleon Bonaparte (who ought to know): An army marches on its stomach.

This practice of no hot breakfast is not only insulting to the men and women who are serving in Afghanistan, but militarily it is most unwise.
