    Willard? He's president???? WTF does he have to do with anything involving the US government? Hell Obama wants to cut defense spending yet they are buying fire wood. THAT is what you should be commenting on.

    Eisenhower, Republican, warned us about this with his Military Industrial Complex speech but nobody listened.

    It has to be fire resistant if you issue it to the troops

    The Military has been wasting money for decades and all of a sudden it has caught Freewill's attention?
    I remember at least 2 decades ago when it was revealed the military was spending $200 for toilet seats. If there is one department within our government who needs to be audited, it has to be the Department of Defense. And let's have the audit go back at least twenty years.
