Stanley McChrystal, the top U.S. commander in that war zone. McChrystal’s “fragmentary order,” known as a FRAGO, follows a review of morale, welfare and recreation activities in Afghanistan during which base and unit commanders completed a 60-day assessment and submitted impact statements and recommendations for closure or relocation of AAFES facilities. I see this as a very good thing. I never had any of that crap when I was in Afghanistan and I was no worse off for it. A PX would have been nice though.
