Overseas Help

Days after we invaded Marja, Afghanistan, one of my Marines found out his wife hadn’t paid the cell phone bill. He called the company and asked how he could settle up.

"You can go to Western Union and place a money order," the billing agent told him.

"Ma’am, I’m in Marja, Afghanistan," he explained. "We don’t have Western Unions."

"No problem. You can also go to Walmart."
