Review of revision 1209891 [Passed][edit]

Sources do not support article[edit]

Unless I am just missing it, I don't see how the two sources given for this article support the material. Neither mention "personal budget crisis for U.S. troops".

I originally looked because I thought "personnel" must be meant instead of "personal". Could this be checked please? Thanks, Mattisse (talk) 23:12, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

These two articles don't even mention the military. Mattisse (talk) 23:34, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
The "personal budget crisis" for the troops refers to the fact that instead of paying troops 2 weeks wages, as is due to them, it looks like they will only receive a weeks worth of wages, which will leave some personnel out of pocket, thus having to handle budgeting issues of their own.

Yeah, I've heard that other places, but is it in the sources? Also, shouldn't the headline be "U.S. budget crisis will cause personnel budget crisis for U.S. troops"? Instead of "personal"? Mattisse (talk) 00:26, 8 April 2011 (UTC)
