Dear Senator Brown :
I flew home from Florida to vote for you along with three of my four adult children. My youngest son is on active duty in the Navy, a photojournalist, and my middle son is a Seabee. I would like you to find out why my son, who is out to sea on a ship, has to pay for toothpaste, etc. or a new uniform out of his measly paycheck, if it is mandatory that he have these items. Ballplayers get millions plus uniforms and extras and my sons are volunteer enlisted men (19 and 22) who defend the very freedom that allows these ballplayers and all of us to do what we do everyday, and they have to have their paychecks reduced for these items? As a member of the military, I am sure you know what I mean. I would appreciate a bill sponsored by you to stop this. If other government employees get clothing allowances shouldn't they at least get that? Thank you for your anticipated help in this matter.
