Sounds like the military has not improved that much with keeping track of things. I remember when the airbase was here, I knew someone in receiving
and they had all kinds of parts they did not order, evidently some high ranking official ordered parts for them because some congressmen decided that
they needed the parts and supplies to keep their manufacturers in money. They auctioned off two brand new fighter jet engines, less the fuel delivery
system, for the cost of scrap...the engines did not fit the jets they had here. Those auctions were great, they had many brand new ladders they sold
for pennies on the dollar, sent to them by the system even though they did not need them and they were cluttering the storage areas. Great auctions.
I was at the one with the jet engines and the one with the ladders. I know who got the ladders, I did not need that many so I bid a hundred bucks, he
got it at two hundred for maybe twenty commercial grade step ladders and extension ladders. I know some people who went every year and made a bundle
selling the stuff they got. I never got a bid myself.
At least they found the stuff before it went obsolete.
