Having been stationed there with wife & kids, I will say it was some of the best times of our lives.  Quiet sleepy back water base with beautiful caribbean beaches.  Just loved it.

This was before the evil Sith Lords (Bush / Cheney) turned it into a concentration camp.

The US DoD's statement explained G4S' tasks will include "family housing, facility management, facility investment, other (swimming pools), custodial, pest control, integrated solid waste management, grounds maintenance and landscaping, base support vehicles and equipment, electrical, wastewater, water, and limited facilities support functions".

What the fark are the rest of the armed forces doing that is keeping them so busy government feels the need to hire mercenaries?

This is an alarming trend and people should be asking more questions of politicians who support this nonsense.

$118 million works out to a fraction of a buck per person (simplified math).

I don't FEEL like I'm getting a quarter and a dime worth of value, here

Ah, the rebranded Wackenhut. They had some good guys, but Jeebus, they seemed like they would hire anyone.
Hmm, now that I am considering a new  jorb...

Was stationed there for 2-1/2 years and it was one of the best times of my life.  Beautiful weather, lovely beaches.  I would go back again in a heartbeat.

Better yet, when did G4S get into doing those sorts of things?  Pest control?  Solid waste management?  Last I checked they were a security guard service.

I read the headline as "Guantanamo Boy" (absolutely no idea how I managed that)...

and thought of something along the lines of a cabana boy who might pique Rush Limbaugh's interest.

Sucking up healthcare and benefits, which contractors have to pay for themselves. The armed forces are being outsourced for the same reasons everyone else is.
