I am a retired (21 ½ years) Infantry First Sergeant (E-8) who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan. After my retirement in April 2011, I saw first hand the hardships that are associated with leaving the Military. I am now commited to help elavate and serve those who served as a counselor and a service coordinator in Boise, Idaho.
This is nothing new, I would have been in the news many times. This is a standard procedure in the Army, that and "get on line" to walk through a training area to find something that should have been tied down in the first place.

(CNN) -- Nearly 100 soldiers are confined to a Washington state base following a report of missing sensitive military equipment, including scopes and night lasers, a spokesman said Sunday.
Soldiers in the 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division unit can have day visits but must sleep at the base at night, said Maj. Chris Ophardt, a spokesman at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
Authorities conducted an inventory last month and are trying to determine how long the equipment has been missing, he said.
The unit has been home from Iraq since September 2010.
Authorities have offered a $10,000 reward. No more information was immediately available.
