Wear a Vest

Here's an interesting New York Times article claiming that up to 80% of the marines killed in Iraq could have been saved had they had proper equipment from the Pentagon.

I heard about this a long time ago (maybe in late 2003 or so) and the related fact that tons of U.S. Marines were writing home and asking for this armory from their loved ones ahead of anything else. People's mothers had to go out and locate this material or find it online for purchase to send it all the way to Iraq and then have it disseminated to their child. In the meantime, their children are "protecting freedom" for a nation that leaves them at constant and unnecessary lethal risk.
