Sounds like a joke,but if true,how do we know that these vehicles ever existed?

It may just be a way to get 20 billion dollars for replacements.

As for the troops that disappeared, did they ever really exist or were they just paper troops,getting a paycheck that was being pocketed in an overseas account.

Heads should roll,but it is eyes that are rolling instead.

Business as usual.

Paranoid?Sure I am paranoid,but it is a healthy paranoia.

He’s a person that likes to blend in and get along with people that know him, but he’s a hard person too find when you need him?

Sarge: "you're on a charge for being AWOL from camouflage training sessions."

GI Joe: "Not true Sarge. I have been present at every lesson. Sarge!"

Sarge: "Well, nobody has seen you there"

GI Joe: "That's because I learn quick. Sarge."
