Military Orders 77,000 Body Bags

Here's the sobering part of war planning. Back in 1991, the military ordered 16,000 body bags. Now, they have ordered five times as many, 77,000 body bags. Hopefully, if war comes, just as the 16,000 order was far too much in 1991, this number is also a grim overestimate.

But with street fighting in urban warfare possible, it may not be. It would be better not to find out.
