Army Bans 'Non-Issue' Armor

The Army has decided to ban all armor other than that for which they provide to the troops due to the 'fact' that other armor may be substandard issue.
"We're very concerned that people are spending their hard-earned money on something that doesn't provide the level of protection that the Army requires people to wear. So they're, frankly, wasting their money on substandard stuff," said Col. Thomas Spoehr, director of materiel for the Army.
Meanwhile, Mr. Murry Neal, CEO of one of the companies that has been providing such armor, has this to say:
"We know of no reason the Army may have to justify this action," Neal said. "On the surface this looks to be another of many attempts by the Army to cover up the billions of dollars spent on ineffective body armor systems which they continue to try quick fixes on to no avail."
