Most Americans have already felt the effects of Bidenflation, with many working-class families being forced to apply for food stamps or use food banks for the first time in their lives.

One group that has thus far been overlooked by the Biden administration and the general public is US servicemembers.

An incoming junior enlisted Private Second Class (E-2) in the Armed Forces makes only $1,836 a month, which shakes out to $11.48 per hour.

While soldiers are offered various benefits to help them afford the costs of living, including free food at military facilities, soldiers with families are likely struggling to keep up with the rising costs of fuel and food.

For those soldiers who are struggling to keep up with the rising costs of essential household items, the Sgt. Major of the Army released official ‘guidance’ suggesting that they apply for food stamps.

The U.S. Army cites the higher prices on a range of goods because of inflation in its recently released official guidance.

“With inflation affecting everything from gas prices to groceries to rent, some Soldiers and their families are finding it harder to get by on the budgets they’ve set and used before,” the guidance written by Sgt. Maj. of the Army Michael A. Grinston reads.

“Soldiers of all ranks can seek guidance, assistance, and advice through the Army’s Financial Readiness Program.”

The guidance points soldiers to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and links them to the federal welfare program’s website.

“SNAP is a U.S. government program that provides benefits to eligible low-income individuals and families via an electronic benefits transfer card that can be used like a debit card to purchase eligible food in authorized retail food stores. Service members and their families may be eligible,” the Army guidance reads.
