Food service to the military?

I was riveted by today’s Wall Street Journal account of how corporations are–among other manifestations of fraud and corruption–overcharging the military for food service in Iraq. Look at what kind of food they are supplying, let alone how much it costs: more than $2.7 million per month for chicken wings and nearly $750,000 per month for egg rolls? That’s a lot of egg rolls. I wonder how many per person that turns out to be.
