    Remember when they were saying the government wasn't doing 'enough'? Now it seems, too much.

    Hate to say it... But it's user error more than anything else. If they aren't being trained properly thats one thing... But the military is trying to use Humvees in ways that they were never meant for, as Semper was saying.

    EDIT: Changed name from Gunny to Semper Fi. Sorry, I got confused for a moment.
