$1 Million a Year Per Soldier?

"It’s estimated that each soldier in Afghanistan costs the government $1 million a year." Really? That's a lot of MREs or maybe they're getting all the proper up-to-date equipment they need. If it costs $1 million per soldier I wonder how much it costs per KBR employee? $2 million?

Having some inside information on how the contractor side works, especially from a pricing for labor hours perspective I feel their figure of 1m a year is off. When I was in Iraq as a contractor my company billed the Govt about 550k a year for my time there. Keep in mind this is just labor. Factor in my meals, laundry and housing that were provided free of charge by the Govt and we are probably talking around a 1m a year for a contractor.
