Army Sgt in Iraq orders mats, receives insult

January 23rd, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sergeant Hess, a member of the U.S. Army currently serving in Iraq, is tired of sleeping on the “cold ground, which contains sand mites, sand flies and other disease carriers.” So Sergeant Hess tried ordering some mats to sleep on from Discount-Mats.com. He emailed the company asking if they ship to APO addresses. The reply he got was disturbing:

SGT Hess,

We do not ship to APO addresses, and even if we did, we would NEVER ship to Iraq. If you were sensible, you and your troops would pull out of Iraq.

From the “Why Choose Us” page of Discount-Mats.com’s website (which has been taken down):

Outstanding Service – As a customer, you’re part of our family. You can expect friendly, courteous, responsive service before and after the sale.

I think not!

According to Fox News, the Web-based company is registered to Faisal Khetani, an American Muslim of Pakistani descent.

My guess is this company will change names and never reopen their phone lines or check their email, but if they do and you’d like to leave them a message…
