Government records covering the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force show pistols, machine guns, shotguns and automatic assault rifles have vanished from armories, supply warehouses, Navy warships and elsewhere.
I agree and have 'some' experience with armories and inventory procedures.When I was in the Army and yes its been a minute or two , they used to take a missing weapon really seriously
Thieves join the military and when seeing an opportunity will turn turn their nefarious skills into opportunity.
I know a former army soldier who said somebody hid someone else’s M4 during training. Wasn’t stolen but what a cluster f*ck.
That’s one of the best Christmas celebrations I’ve ever heard.My uncle saw a way better shape Garand in a ditch so grabbed it and threw his beat to $hit Garand down. months later he turned in his weapon and the armorer said, “This isn’t the weapon that was issued to you!” My uncle replied, “That’s the weapon I came off Christmas Hill with”. Nothing else was said.
I think many in the article are clerical errors.
