'Fast lane' system expedites gear to troops in Afghanistan
from USA Today
The Pentagon is speeding up life-saving military gear to troops in Afghanistan under a new "fast lane" system run a by a small group of senior Defense officials and put in place by then-Defense secretary Robert Gates. The system is designed to get the military to move faster on equipment requested by battlefield commanders who say they need it to protect troops better. Among items fast-tracked are gunshot locators to find snipers, increased vehicle armor and underwear that helps protect troops from buried mine explosions.
