Allison Barber, the chief of the American Forces Information Service, was in charge of the “America Supports You” program meant to show the public’s support for U.S. troops and their families. Instead, she funneled $8.8 million in contracts to the Susan Davis International public relations firm, which used the money to pay their executives between $312,000 and $662,000 a year.
