That makes a lot of sense. In fact, it's gotten worse. Our military sent some troops in without the equipment they need, such as Kelvar vests. Think they gave a crap. it wasn't their kids. Imagine your family having to purchase one because the military is short handed. If you don't have the money to equip your troops, don't go to war!!!!
