    It was reported today that Cher has donated 100,000 dollars of her own money for helmets for the troops. :thumbs:

    Sad that she needs to.

    Too bad this Republican administration didn't seen fit do at least outfit our troops correctly before deciding to invade a sovereign nation.

    It is good at cutting taxes and lining the pockets of the rich.

    Lets see here. Letting the wealthy keep more of the money they earned for themselves.

    And this is bad why?

    Am I missing something here. Which soldiers did not have helmets? I have heard of flack vests only being given to trigger pullers but I thought every soldier had a helmet.

    My mom was just telling me about this yesterday.

    She'd seen a dad of a soldier on a talk show and his son wrote home asking for a modern helmet -- that his was not any better than WWII issue. Dad did some research and found what his son said was true. Dad has sent several boatloads of modern helmets over and Cher has joined him.

    According to Rumsfeld, "troops are fungible."

    Apparently, it's cheaper to send more over, than to buy all that expensive gear to protect them.

    Thanks to Cher. Shame on this administration.

    This goes back to the Bush administration's policy that reservists are second-class. The regular troops in the US have the good helmets. But reservists in harm's way get the junk.

    Yea, the President of the Unites States said "Reservists do not deserve those helmets". It is all him. And in fact it is an actual policy of the administration not to provide thos helmets.Give me a break!
