This is what happens to military improvisors and innovators when politicians and bean-counters start calling the shots with our troops.

Kill the lawyers involved and restore these troops to their former ranks with benefits. On second thought, kill all other laywers.

I think in the army this is called reallocating equipment. A true soldier never steals parts.

Hard to call these acts of theft....Seems like what did them in was the coverup attempt.

We need a replay of "The Great Escape" with focus on James Garner alias "The Scrounger".

This is amazing. It is standard practice for units to "appropriate" equipment from other units. Usually, the supply sergeants worked out trades. I remember being "in the field" and walking a post around our unit's gear sheds in order to protect it from being stolen by other units in the field. And the other units did the same.

"Instead of taking the trucks back to their rightful owners, the first thing was erasing the identity marks and dumping them off at bases," Wicker said. "They destroyed it. They did the enemy's job. ... Those trucks could be used for other units."

Were the trucks destroyed or, worse yet, end up in enemy hands? I have no problem with them being taken. If you take 'em, use 'em or get them to someone else that will.
