Boots and body armor

Before you fret over troops in Iraq and Afghanistan being “forced” to buy their own boots and body armor (shame on you, Senator Edwards), read this. It’s been going on for decades, and does not indicate any kind of shortage. What you’re seeing are supplemental purchases made by the troops to make their lives in the field more comfortable.
