Comments: Let's try this again.

The body armor problem has been going on a very long time. I had to be re-issued equipment after my original equipment was destroyed when the aircraft crashed. It took over a month with all of the proper paperwork already filled out when I went in for the replacements. That was in 1969.

For some reason the people in military supply can't conceive of the loss of equipment in war time. Go figure.

I suspected as much. The truth is, when you're talking about a bureaucracy the size of the military, these things are inevitable.
