I seriously doubt that this is a real letter, but if it is, it is a tremendous exaggeration with serious omission of the facts.
Burger Kings are on just about every Air Force and Army Base in the continental United States and overseas. We even had a Burger King in the middle of the Saudi Arabian Desert when I was there. On a side note, the Saudi BK was the best ever... always fresh, hot and quick.
How many of you knew BK was in the desert? This is a war zone folks! How many of us would fault them if they didn't set up camp in the desert?
Back to my point... BK doesn't give discounts to military on the bases, what makes this guy think he is getting it anywhere else?
Sure, they have an advantage by being in close proximity to such a large number of hungry people, but they have always served the military well. They even have special "military" offers all the time.
Don't you think that if BK had some sort of "anti-military" policy, they'd pack up and leave all the military installations? I am sure any number of fast-food joints would be willing to take their place.
and for the navy folks, I know Naval Installations have McDonalds, but we get the point.
Bottom line, this is some feeble attempt at a coupon or some free grub.
I doubt this guy is even in the military, probably some high school ROTC HACK!
