File This Under: Pissed Off

An American GI assigned to one of the harshest posts in Iraq had a simple request last week for a Wisconsin mattress company: send some floor mats to help ease the hardship of sleeping on the cold, bug-infested ground.

Army Sgt. Jason Hess sent an e-mail to Discount-mats.com:
"Do you ship to APO (military) addresses? I'm in the 1st Cavalry Division stationed in Iraq and we are trying to order some mats but we are looking for ships to APO first."

On the same day, Hess received this reply:

"SGT Hess,

We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.

Bargain Suppliers

Now apparently, the dude that sent the e-mail has been fired. I don't care. This story highlights the real "support" the troops get from the anti-Iraq War crowd. They couldn't give a flying feck about our troops. Needless to say, make sure you don't purchase a frickin' mat from these dickwads.
