All I can say is I saw so much pure, governmental WASTE when I was in the military it makes me want to puke. Nowdays it's almost as bad looking at these government auction sites selling "surplus" products. Granted I can understand machine tools,industrial equipment being upgraded as they get older and then sold as surplus (vs acrapping them, that's actually good business), but explain to me, how do things like wrenches, sockets, and other small hand tools that are brand new become "surplus". I can ask this with the experience of someone who spend over 4 years working in shipboard engine rooms where having a personal pair of vice-grips and an adjustible wrench was allmost manditory if you wanted to get anything done....All the while money that should have been spent on tools for us was wasted on things like rebuilding pumps that had no problems so an inspection crew could see how good out equipment was while the pump having the problems was left to be a problem child....and then, because of the idiots rebuidling it, the one that never gave problems became a problem too........

One year when I was a fuel chief in the guard. I received two real fuel tankers. Brand new straight from the factory. After one summer camp. They took them away from me and sent them to Brazil. Gave me two wore out duce and halfs. Then told me to go to the salvage yard and piece together two fuel trucks.

Still upsets me to this day.
