Why do we use so many military contractors instead of using military personnel?
It seems like a DOD engineer could develop weapons or soldier could make breakfast just as easily as an employee of Bechtel.

Not only that Grly the DOD budget is probably the least read fiscal document that passes through, so they can basically write in their own pay once they're in the budget. Like I mentioned in your previous question OP there was a housing company that was just found to be defrauding the military and government for billions a year, not to mention it's also one of the worst rated subsidized housing corporations in America.

There's also a big hullabaloo about food services and weaponry, but basically we're told you signed the contract deal with it.
Or when you deal with TriCare trying to accept a referral for your child, who is deaf~and they tell you, "we don't have to be concerned with customer service, we are government funded insurance company. "... That was when I left, decided I would have to work to afford civilian health care and get out of the military system.

Why doesn't the military make a bigger stink about this? It seems like they would want to keep the money in-house.
There is a big stink in the privatized housing area. But bureaucrats and their contractor cronies trump family members. It isn't stopping family members from fighting the fight, but in the end~bureaucrats and their contractor cronies win..
