Military blogger Michael Yon has noticed a disturbing trend during his time embedded with our men and women fighting on the front lines in Afghanistan: we need better pants.
"Rip, rend and slash are all in a day’s work here. Yet I have never seen so many troops with so many pairs of pants that are ready to fall off," Yon writes in his latest dispatch from Kandahar Province. Our troops are forced to duct tape their pants together or pull out needle and thread to mend them when time permits. "The troops need better pants," he concludes.
