U.S. Probes if GIs Refused Iraq Mission
http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/ap/20041...

By JOHN J. LUMPKIN, Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON - The Army is investigating reports that several members of a reservist supply unit in Iraq (news - web sites) refused to go on a convoy mission, the military said Friday. Relatives of the soldiers said the troops considered the mission too dangerous.


The reservists are from the 343rd Quartermaster Company, which is based in Rock Hill, S.C. The unit delivers food and water in combat zones.

According to The Clarion-Ledger newspaper in Jackson, Miss., a platoon of 17 soldiers refused to go on a fuel supply mission Wednesday because their vehicles were in poor shape and they did not have a capable armed escort.

The paper cited interviews with family members of some of the soldiers, who said the soldiers had been confined after their refusals. The mission was carried out by other soldiers from the 343rd, which has at least 120 soldiers, the military said.

2. Now it really is starting to look like Vietnam.
Troop moral has to be pretty low for this type of stuff to happen.
