One of my daughter's high school teachers has a son in Afghanistan. With an Army "Striker" unit. (I am hoping some of you will forgive and straighten out my complete ignorance of military terminology!) Anyway, she told the students at school that her son had emailed that his unit, on the front lines mind you, had received direct orders to remove the armor from their vehicles TO MAKE THEM MORE FUEL EFFICIENT AND THEREBY MORE GREEN. She is appalled. As am I. The last citizens of our country who should be expected to even consider fuel efficiency or being GREEN are those on the front lines of the war. I shall post more details as I learn them. Anybody out there heard anything of the sort?
