    I've already done this, years ago. But, my other favorites are on the list also. Simply, greed and people not understanding what the military does for us.

    Remember when Wal-mart prided them selves on only selling products that where made in the USA. Fvck wal-mart, I won't spend any money there if I can avoid it.

    It actually cost a lot more is using USPS to ship to an APO. I regularly ship Auto Week to troops overseas and you cannot believe the cost to ship.

    To me the cost is work it, to ship the magazines, as they get passed around the barracks for all to enjoy.

    Do I believe Wally World is ripping you off, yes.

    Walmart today is nothing how Sam Walton envisioned it. Sam was a patriotic man and believed in selling as many American products as he could. Made in the USA meant something to him; unfortunately his son's sold the company and their souls...to China.

    I'm not sure why Walmart charges more for shipping to troop addresses when they are sponsors in Operation Homefront

    Here is a cut and paste from Operation Homefront page
    http://www.operationhomefront.net/index.asp

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1][SIZE=-2]Fort Bragg, N.C. Dec. 4, 2009 – Walmart gives an early Christmas to more than 10,000 military children and families who will receive free toys, books, Walmart gift cards and gift packages. Through a $1.1 million donation from Walmart, the initiative will benefit families in all branches of the military. The company will also lay 16,000 wreaths at national cemeteries across the United States to honor fallen veterans[/SIZE][/SIZE][/FONT][/SIZE][/FONT]

    Wally world strikes again. They may donate large sums of money, but ot appears they are making it back by charging our troops inflated freight. I have always hated Wal-Mart and never shop there...
