Danz View:Cash and carry military ops? Um ... so tell me, any wager as to how many soldiers close to that kind and amounts of cash didn't manage to sneak out a $100,000 bundle or two in their foot locker or sea bag or duffel bag prior to rotating back to CONUS?
SWAG:Our guys? No way; they're too darn honest for anyone to presume they could get away with it. Besides, cash never influenced anyone, right? My word!
