Fewer than 70 Service members who bought their own body armor have asked for reimbursement -- even though there's money for that.
The Army has only repaid $22,000 to the 30 soldiers who asked for reimbursement.
The Navy, about $5,000 for the 34 Sailors who asked for their money.
The Pentagon had originally opposed the reimbursement plan as a strain on their budget. (NYT)
