Can this be true? 

Oh, my

West Virginia's two U.S. senators asked top military leaders Tuesday to explain why 1st Lt. William "Eddie" Rebrook IV had to reimburse the U.S. Army $700 last week for body armor and other gear damaged after he was seriously wounded by a roadside bomb in Iraq.

Good thing he wasn't killed as in that case they'd bill his estate for all the money spent training him.

I heard it was $500 he was charged for. Apparently the armor was lost when the field medics were treating him, prior to taking him into the chopper. Silly medics not thinking to grab his armor while they were trying to save is life or letting him grab while he was bleeding out.
