Army Orders Soldiers to Shed Dragon Skin or Lose SGLI Death

-Army Orders Soldiers to Shed Dragon Skin or Lose SGLI Death Benefits



www.sftt.org/main.cfm?act...tmlId=4514



"Two deploying soldiers and a concerned mother reported Friday afternoon that the U.S. Army appears to be singling out soldiers who have purchased Pinnacle's Dragon Skin Body Armor for special treatment. The soldiers, who are currently staging for combat operations from a secret location, reported that their commander told them if they were wearing Pinnacle Dragon Skin and were killed their beneficiaries might not receive the death benefits from their $400,000 SGLI life insurance policies. The soldiers were ordered to leave their privately purchased body armor at home or face the possibility of both losing their life insurance benefit and facing disciplinary action."



This is complete BS, I just don't know what to say to this shit. We send our troops out to die but we will not give them the equipment they need to survive, just complete and utter bullshit.

I can't say that I agree with the Arm's decision to do something like this...



Why? Could it be because the Army thinks that their stuff is better for the soldiers??

Know, it is because if no one uses the issued armor, the contract will be ditched and the Army has already spent tons of money investing in Interceptor Body Armor.
