Thought I'd share this....

Once I found out orders where being taken I finally got a ride on a convoy to one of the major places out here in Iraq with a AAFES car sales office set up.

For those that don't know AAFES Car Sales sells new and used cars at decent prices, delievered for free to where ever. etc etc

So I go in and they have this huge poster with a mustang and challenger on it that says "American Muscle for American Soliders". I ask about the Camaro and the guy tells me "GM doesn't want to sell cars to depolyed troops, but ford and dodge will" blah blah, No thanks.

So Then I found this site and found someone else near my hometown that posted the dealer they used and I called them and I've been good to do since.

It really pissed me off that the guy would just balantly basically call GM unamerican.

its not that GM doesnt want to sell cars to deployed troops, its AAFES and their damn jumping thru hoops to get a contract with them.

and if you've been to any AAFES operated facility... you know what the true acronym for AAFES is.....




Asian American Female Employment Service. lmao
