Soldiers forking out big bucks to airlines when coming home

LOUISIANA (FOX44) - Baggage fees are a nuisance to most of us, but for some U.S. soldiers headed back to Louisiana from Afghanistan, they were down right ridiculous!
A soldier we spoke with says his 34 member unit paid almost 3-thousand dollars out of pocket in extra baggage fees.
They were so shocked they took to Youtube.
The soldiers complaint is this should have never happened because
The U.S. Government and Delta have a contract, and in it each soldier is authorized up to four bags.
So apparently some of the soldiers had to fork up $200 bucks each to bring home their equipment.
