However, DRMS does not sell usable weapons and other combat equipment to the public, including combat aircraft, armored vehicles and small arms. Such items are required to be demilitarized prior to sale. Demilitarization is the act of destroying the item's military capability and generally reduces the item to scrap. Capt. F.G. Leeder, USN Staff Director, DLA Public Affairs 


It's been a tough several weeks for those who care about the truth: Congress, the FBI, and the judiciary are seemingly more concerned with providing cover for a foregone conclusion than with uncovering facts.

But we also saw something incredibly powerful: that truth-tellers don't quit, and that speaking up is contagious. I hope you'll read why, even now, we believe the truth will prevail—and why we aren't giving up on our goal of raising $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall, even though there's a long way to go to get there. Please help close the gap with a tax-deductible donation today.
