U.S. military personnel sometimes do find a great deal of money in the Middle East. If it is U.S. dollars, I don't believe they are allowed to keep any of it. It seems it's a different story with foreign currencies, however. I heard a story from a reserve soldier though, of another soldier, a friend of the reserve guy, who took home 400,000 Kuwaiti dinar when they were worth a dime each, before he was redeployed. Back when our boys kicked Iraq out and left, the dinar shot right back up to its older previous value, and beyond. When the soldier heard about it, he phoned back home and told his wife to deposit the money, and they made a cool $3 or $4 million bucks. The Kuwaiti dinar currently stands at US$3.63.
Whenever scammers see news in the media about U.S. soldiers finding money, they take advantage of it right away, and spin their stories about how you can get your hands on it, too. They aren't anywhere near the Middle East, of course, nor are they in the military, so they have no way of getting their hands on any of it. The money they supposedly have doesn't exist, and it never does. This entry is linked here, in the upper right hand corner for awhile, and five different military scam videos are located here.
