    No news as of yet. I wouldn't hold my breath about this. If and it's a big if there will be any decision about reimbursing those of us that were there during the time in question it will be quite a while before anything happens.
    I'm not trying to be offensive but just forget about it for now...maybe a check will show up in a few years..maybe not. It's out of our hands.

    well to sum it up us old timers got screwed. Wonderful WSI billed the Government for us being paid for 24 hours, and then paid us for 16 and pocketed the rest.

    Screwed indeed.


    I was just reviewing other threads here and some one posted to a FF thinking about going over that he should do it now, while you can still "milk it". Still "milk it"..what a ******bag. Hey I know the moneys good and is the draw for most guys going over, but c'mon. Who's being milked..not the government really, surely not good ole WSI..no it's the troops who get the worst of it. Here's people in uniform making what $2000 a month if their lucky covering the *** of everyone there, and all that's important is WSI "FFs"getting their $$. That's some real lowlife sh*t.
    Therein lies the problem with that whole rotten outfit. It isn't about actually serving the military members who are faithfully serving our country and protecting all those WSI "FFs" over there. NO company policy is about everyone grabbing their fat piece of the pie while stepping over, on and around everyone else. The fish truly does rot from the head...I can think of no better example of that than WSI.
    I at least can hold my head high knowing that I always served the military and KBR at my base as a firefighter FIRST, the money really was secondary to me.

    Take care
    and as always
