Fat-Cat AER (Army Emergency Relief) is hoarding its receipts rather than expending them for relief. Its counterparts (Navy and Marine relief agencies) spend much higher percentages of their resources for relief than does AER. At least, The Doser says, it is better to piggy-bank the funds than to graft them. (There is no way, with its miserable internet-accessing system, to refer you directly to The Oregonian news item to which this refers. But here is another.)

Our troops are poorly represented and that isn't apt to change until they are able to hire a lobbyist. Maybe a catchy slogan like "Support Our Troops" would help.
