The image above shows a helmet and the amount of kevlar that was left out due to Sioux Manufacturing's substandard production.
Tomorrow, Thursday, February 28th, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), will join VoteVets.org and two whistle blowers to discuss the need for a congressional investigation into a $74 million Department of Defense contract awarded to a North Dakota manufacturing company, Sioux Manufacturing Company, which has been outfitting our nation's troops with substandard Kevlar helmets.
New tape recordings of employees discussing the production of the substandard Kevlar for helmets will be publicly played and posted for the first time during the TELE-PRESS Conference, tomorrow at 10:30 am. The call in number is 866-211-5938 (no passcode required).
The public is invited. For further conference details, please go here.
Also, VoteVets.org has a petition drive on its website-- Petition to Demand Hearings on Substandard Helmet Procurement, where you can show your support.
