I swear this could have been a thing. Sometimes it seemed that the armor status would change every 30 minutes; you’d no sooner go back to retrieve or drop off armor for the last alert when the status changed yet again. Maybe they just wanted us to hide in our trailers or something.
But the AAFES Acme Armor Caddy..? Someone could have raked up some serious cash.
