Missing Goggles Prompt Fort Lewis Lockdown
http://komotv.com/stories/35038.htm

<snip>
FORT LEWIS - About 400 soldiers at this Army base were on lockdown Friday after a pair of night-vision goggles disappeared.

The lockdown affects about 400 members of the 296th Brigade Support Battalion. It is part of the first Stryker brigade, and returned in October after a year in Iraq, base spokesman Jeff Young said.

Funny.....Soldiers lose NV Goggles and they lose their liberty until found .....BUT Paul Bremer Loses 8 Million $$$$$$$ in Iraq and gets a Medal of Freedom Award....

2. Go Costco and buy a damn pair
(Just kidding) But a lock down for NVG's seems a little excessive.

Edited on Sat Jan-29-05 04:01 AM by miss_kitty
those COs just can't keep track of the gear and blame it on the soldier boys and girls.

Paul Bremer mislaid $8-11 Billion, perhaps more...there's some 'fuzzy math' involved.
