Some Oklahoma lawmakers are calling for an Army investigation into allegations that soldiers serving in Iraq are not being allowed regular meals.

Representatives Mary Fallin and Tom Cole raised concerns after reports of soldiers at Camp Bucca working nine-hour shifts without being served lunch.

While none of them would comment on camera, several soldiers we spoke with in Ardmore today said they eat better when they are deployed than when they are at home.

    Oh my gosh, you have to be so totally kidding me! Wow, 9, sometimes 10 hour shifts, sometimes no hot lunch boxes with little scooby-do milk cartons! That mean ole commander! Hey, they have a name for that; 'sandinthegina'. Hey, get up a little early and hit the chow hall and eat a good breakfast, and take a go plate, some protein bars, or some fruit.....or, as you're fobbing around base, look for those strange brown plastic containers called MRE's and put one or two in your purse! Hey, those shocked at some of the comments about whining...get over it, we have real soldiers over there whacking bad guys every day and taking hits as well, and they're not complaining about internet connections being too slow! Dont buy into the bs....listen to the comments by people that have been over there.....this soldier is not a professional....she discredits all the others who are out there doing their jobs and serving their country!

    My daughter is deployed to Camp Bucca and says this is not true. The cafeteria is open 24 hours a day with a wide selection of food. In fact she says some soldiers are packing on a few extra pounds. There is also a Pizza Hut, Burger King, and Subway on the base.
