When you're in a highly intense combat situation, rest is required to unwind psycologically. Even in WW2, such commodities were given. If this is not given, the mental damage of killing other humanbeings, being in a land that hates you (In some parts, not the majority), having friends that die, and being away from loved ones and general society - such damage would serverely wound even the most stoic of individual.
Im going to guess that internally you are rebelling against the notion that soldiers must be elevated above normal expectations of treatment. As such I will forgive your ignorance, but you need to realize that this simply isn't the government throwing money at "a vacation". It is a form of therapy to keep soldiers calm in battle.
On a third note, you should apologize to this guy for ruining his thread.
You realize that forum discussion is not something that is exclusively on the internet, right? He's citing reports from discussions by those involved by in forum discussions initiated by Sony. There is a signifigant difference between that and some random forum on the internet (You really didn't think he was citing a internet forum, did you?).
