On a military installation, life is different in many ways. For instance, if your kid goes to school at one of the on-installation schools, paying lunch money is a bit more……..draconian.
From an actual email sent to military parents:
The Child Nutrition Department reminds parents and guardians that as the end of the 2012-2013 school year approaches, all student meal accounts must be in a zero or positive balance by close of business May 24th. Any account in a negative status after May 24th is subject to a wage garnishment thru the DD Form139 process with an additional $50 service fee added to the total wage garnishment.
