Description

WOOD-TV finds that politicans and civilians fly free around the world under a National Guard public relations program. Federal taxpayers are paying millions of dollars a year in flight time. No federal agency has ever audited the program, though other like military trips have recently been found to have waste and abuse. WOOD-TV found that these trips often benefit certain politicans, who are powerful enough to play a role in the National Guards future budget. (Nov. 24, 1995)
