This is YOUR Military

Dad picks up $600 tab for son's Iraq body armor

John Tod of Mesa had been prepared to face Father's Day worrying about his son's pending date with the war in Iraq. Then Uncle Sam stepped in with more disappointing developments.

Marine Pfc. Jeremy Tod, 19, called home with news that his superiors were urging him and fellow Marines to buy special military equipment, including flak jackets with armor plating, to enhance the prospects of their survival. The message was that such purchases were to be made by Marines with their own money.

"He said they strongly suggested he get this equipment because when they get to Iraq they will wish they had," Tod said. Total estimated cost: $600.

BRILLIANT!!! For all ya military Republican freaks, who SWEAR this war was to protect America, tell me this: who's protecting these kids????

Not your sorry ass government, that's for sure!!

What's next a fuckin' bake sale to buy ammo? Maybe we can sale girl scout cookies to purchase tanks or have a Krispy Kreme fundraiser for fighter planes?

THIS is what your vote got us into and the blood is on YOUR hands!!! GREAT JOB!!!
