Ford Focus Deemed Safe In The Military

Well lately the Marine Corps has been purchasing new vehicles and Ford Focus Sedan SE is one of them on their list. Pretty much fuel economy and safety makes a car on the list as a govvy (government vehicle). Sucks I'm on base with all these Focus govvy's running around but I tweaked mine a bit so it stands out

There are alot of new Foci running around here on Fort Hood as Gov vehicles. Mostly the DA Civilians drive around in them. I am guessing they are buying them because they are cheap and can get them by the masses, just like the Suburbans, Tahoes, F150's, & Fusion Hybrids

My recruiter(Marines) and the army recuiter that shares the same office as him both have them with gov tags. Never really thought much about it, interesting.

Are these foci standard colors or repainted?

I can't figure out how excessive government spending will make you happier that you had one. Punctuation is your friend.

You are really convinced that all of us should be having problems all because you had a bad apple...

Have you served in the military or do you otherwise have an intimate knowledge of their purchasing policies? If not, you're just speaking out of your bum.

Best to leave conjecture out of your intended points unless you can back it up. Having served in the military myself I can say with first hand knowledge that your assessment makes you appear like an ignoramus, is unfounded, and incorrect.
