    As a Marine.....

    "During an election year especially, NOT ONE POLITICIAN is going to be caught voting "No" on a piece of gear which the public views as critical in protecting our troops."

    Sa stated in the article, the will of the American electorate must be protected:

    "Many Marines, however, believe the politics of the issue eventually will make the plates mandatory."

    Those in the most hostile jobs also use the inserts, and we know the chaos in Iraq is becoming more intense:

    "Some Marines have chosen to wear the plates, particularly those in more vulnerable jobs such as Humvees turret gunners or those who frequently travel on roads plagued by roadside bombs.""
