I do not believe this story.
What officer would ever issue an order that states an insurance policy would not be paid? That is crazy.
Some REMF who has spent his whole career in procurement in the Pentagon and has his future tied up in slelcting the current armor.
The numbers just do not add up in this case.
If nine Generals are wearing the dragon armor, then all soldiers should be allowed to wear the same.
I would like to see the names of the alleged nine Generals.
I think this may be more liberal propaganda in the making.
What party or affliation does this info-warrant officer belong to covertly?
The liberal democrats are just another form of terrorists we as Americans face.
I question also why any officer or commander would make such a statement without a regulation or directive to support why (sgli) would be denied. Maybe (AR Make It Up As We Go-100-DNC)
We will see soon that this witch's tale is just another sheehan-kennedy-kerry-durbin-klinton fear mongering intended to disrupt our soldiers morale.

"What officer would ever issue an order that states an insurance policy would not be paid?"
One who does not know what he is talking about. I have attended briefings were officers repeated stories of soldiers being denied SGLI benefits because they were not wearing helmets or other noncompliance with SOPs at the time of death or were involved in a DUI death. It did not sound correct to me. I reviewed the statute which authorizes the SGLI program and learned that just about the only way that you can be disqualified for SGLI payments is if you are executed for a criminal offense, unrelated to your military duties, by a lawfully constituted domestic or foreign court.
