Marines Recall Body Armor

The latest breaking story about protective armor for our troops is the one about the Marines recalling some 19,000 Interceptor Body Armor Vests.

For the most complete details regarding this story, which includes links to the supporting documentations showing that they were waived and issued even though there were recommendations that they not be issued to the troops, read the story at The Marine Times:The Marines' flawed body armor - Corps recalls more than 5,000 vests that experts rejected - but some remain in the field. They're the ones that broke the story and their article is by far the most comprehensive of all the related articles on the net.
