Of course that shite happens. I'm not one of these that say, no defense spending cuts.
I think every branch of government, including military needs to be audited, and cut. I do not, however, want things like weapons and armor cut, for the sake of saving pennies. Get them the best for the troops out there. But again, accounting needs to be put in place.
The military, is, after all, an arm of the federal government. There is no more wasteful of an entity, than the US Federal Government.
