Complaints from the Ranks

Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld took on the troops in Kuwait. Soldiers complained about the lack of armored Humvees and long deployments.

"You go to war with what you've got," the Secretary told them.

Most of the complaints came from Guard and Reservists. They've had big problems getting the right armor for their vehicles and experienced longer than expected deployments. (AP)
