        This brings up several questions
        1. Why is this only offered to military?
        I understand supporting the troops and all, but there are a lot of low income families in Killeen that need this program more. I know someone will throw a fit and remind me of all that the military "does," "sacrifices" blah blah blah. This is Killeen, a good amount of the population is comprised of veterans(including myself), but the rest of us are stuck paying hundreds a month for daycare. Which leads to the next question
        2.How is this being payed for?
        The superintendent claims they have the "space" but where does the teacher's salary come from for an all day program at 7 schools. Essentially this is a slap in the face to tax payers who AREN'T in the military, yet WE will end up indirectly funding this.
