I was thumbing through some Department of Defense literature and came across this interesting fact.

The DOD will pay incentive pay to any soldier who speaks Gaelic, Gallic, Cornish, Breton and Scotch Gaelic!! Of course, nobody told me this when I was in a location where I could take the test!! Now I'm sitting in some crap hole of a sand box and I'm missing out on extra pay!! (Assuming I'm as capable as I think I am!)

Anyway, I found this interesting.

Le meas,

James

Oops. Maybe not. I've seen some more literature that suggests these languages have been dropped.

I've got an e-mail in to the "source" at DOD. Her response will be interesting, I'm sure.

Le meas,

James
