    So I'm an idiot and lost the yoke assembly for my IBA. Anyone have an extra laying around that you'd sell? Also if any of my current fellow Army *****es know of someone who'd be willing to trade their ACU DAPS (Angel Wings and Side Plates) for a set of DCU DAPS, let me know. Thanks.

    Respectfully,

    Stupid Grunt

    To all in Iraq. Don't leave your **** laying around. 16vmkII is gonna take it:supergrin: .

    Seriously dude, our supply guy was able to scrounge one at Anaconda. He able to get other parts at Seitz. I'm sure this was a 100% backdoor deal, but who knows.

    good luck:freak:

    Anyone know if I can't come up with the yoke/collar assembly piece, if I'm going to have to pay for the entire IBA? That would suck something terrible...****!

    Our supply guy is a ****brick, and won't help anyone out for anything. Guy's had multiple article 15's for not doing his job, so there's no hope in even approaching him to try and work out some sort of drug deal. I'm thinking my bank account's going to take a pretty heavy hit when I outprocess back at Lewis... :(

    Did you loose the entire yoke, or just the throat protector?

    Dude, come clean with the 1SG and see what he can do for you. You should be able to write some bull**** to make it go away. If not good luck. Got a medic in the unit? If so have them write theirs off as contaminated with blood and had to be destroyed. Then use theirs. It worked for me and I helped out a couple of guys that way. Should have seen the look on the face of the Supply SGT when I brought him something blood soaked the first time. After that he just said to burn it and it will be replaced.

    Oh, I'm a smart one...I lost the entire yoke, minus the throat protector.

    I've already spoken with my 1SG and he said he would initiate a field loss. I do not necessarily want to go that route, as it's dishonest. I emailed PointBlank and hopefully they'll sell me a new one.

    Hey man, sorry I didn't answer your message, I'm scrounging my arse off over here, but that craps hard to come by. If only it was flight armor, I'd have your hook up....

    If you can get the yoke, I'll make it worth your effort.

    If anyone can find me the ACU Daps (covers only would work too), I'll paypal you $100.00 finder fee

    Dude,

    On my TPE book and in FEDLOG the DAP covers "Axillary Protector Outershell" cost $18.30 a set. Don't spend money you don't have too.

    And (IIRC) on a statement of charges, the army reduces your cost by 10% for depreciation. If you're in a postion where you are going to pay the army for uniform or TA-50 type items it's almost always cheaper to let them take it from your check as they go through this whole statement of charges depreciation thing. Course it's easier and faster to hit a pawn shop (when you're in the states) but why?

    Anybody know if they changed the depreciation rules?
