Action: Army unit given the shaft for bush's escalation.
These soldiers were two hours away from leaving Afghanistan when orders came down that their tour has been extended. All their equipment, spare clothes, and personal items have been sent home. So now the whole company is sleeping in one large tent.

Here's the article and contact info to help:

2. They will be there for the spring offensive.
As of now the Pentagon will do nothing to retrieve their supplies. If all they have is what they have on their backs, that means they have no ammo.
