    As the war in Afghanistan continues to wind down, millions of pounds of combat equipment are being received and disposed of each week, according to officials with the Defense Logistics Agency, Disposition Services.

    In a single week in October, the agency received 4.7 million pounds of equipment too costly to repair or no longer needed by the services to conduct unit missions. That’s the equivalent of more than 1,000 Ford F-150 pickup trucks.

    For those living in Southern California, the marine barracks at Yermo outside of Barstow has frequent auctions of surplus military equipment. Want a demilitarized Humvee? Get one cheap there.
