it gets even worse,,, the last couple lines

"Uniform officials decided to go with UCP instead of waiting for the Army to decide late this year if it is going to issue a new camouflage pattern for Afghanistan.

“Let’s get these kids a lighter vest; let’s not delay,” Fuller said"


it's late october,,,,, so we will probably be buying double the vests,,, because you know gov't bureacracy,,,,, they''ll change the camoflauge color,,,,, which will require a whole new batch


couldn't they wait 2 months,,,,, it's not like they're going without armor,,,, it's just heavier


so you know us taxpayers are gonna have a bunch of useless wrong color vests in a couple months


no, we're not broke
