Army Body Armor Not Up To Par

A new report out says the Army cuts corners when testing body armor used by U.S. troops.

The Pentagon Inspector General says service officials did not consistently enforce and sometimes lowered testing requirements for the protective vests that costs U.S. taxpayers some $434 million.

The report says taking the shortcuts limits the Army's assurance that the vest meet what the contract requires.

The Army has agreed to determine whether a recall of any battlefield gear is necessary.
