... br> In talking with one of the Lieutenants, I learned that they would love to have a particular backpack, bullet-proof vest (see pic) but its cost prohibitive. Each one costs about $600. They currently have 27. They would like to have 450.

After discussing this with Bobby the other night on my ride back from Chevron, I learned that buying equipment for the IDF is not that simple and requires some extensive homework. A homework I intend to do. ...
