    Pentagon spent $504,816 on Viagra last year

    The Department of Defense spent more than a half a million dollars on the male enhancement drug Viagra last year, according to government contracts.

    The Washington Free Beacon reports the Pentagon issued 60 contracts worth $504,816 for the drug in 2014. All 60 contracts were awarded to Cardinal Health Inc., a pharmaceutical distribution company based in Dublin, Ohio.

    Last year, the department also ordered $3,505 worth of Levitra, and $14,540 of Cialis, other popular erectile dysfunction drugs.

    The contracts were filed under “Troop Support.”

    The department began offering Viagra to soldiers as a medical benefit in 1998, when the drug cost $10 a pill. Due to inflation, one pill now costs $25. At the time the military’s policy only allowed for six pills a month per patient, and the department said they would “not replace lost or stolen pills.”

    LOL

    Well, in all fairness, it makes perfect sense. You can't get your missiles off if they're not pointed at the sky.

    LOL How ironic they even blamed Gaddafi forces for their use of the same drug.

    Half a million dollars a year and I still can't find a playable youtube of the Dr. Strangelove scene about stolen precious bodily fluids.

    The military obviously needs more more more Viagra money in the next budget.

    Maybe if they stop serving saltpeter to them, they wouldn't need Viagra.
    Proverbs 29:18
    "Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he."

    Hosea 4:6
    "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children."

    Totally irrelevant.

    The saltpeter is for the enlisted. The Viagra is for the officers.

    Gotta make sure only the right people do the screwing and only everyone else gets screwed.

    Tax payers funded pills are given to just married soldiers? Or to single soldiers serving in war zones like Iraq, Afghan, Libya too?
    Are these given to both hetrosexual and gay soldiers under DADT?
    Has the impact on war machinery of such a policy been studied? Were anyone serving at Abu Ghraib given these pills?

    "They" being a few crazy nutbags like this guy who raped/killed 14 year old girl and her family in Iraq. This guy incidentally was found dead in his prison cell couple of years ago.

    This may have medieval revenge mentality behind it but such extreme thinking is probably more likely to be found within few radicalized nutbags in mideast/holy land regions than in the freedom lreader US.

    Why did the Pentagon spend millions last year on Viagra? The answer isn’t as funny as you might think

    Earlier this month, a story made the rounds that the Pentagon had spent more than $500,000 last year on Viagra, the erectile dysfunction (ED) drug.
    But now, an updated report indicates that figure was way, way off: the military actually dropped some $41.6 million on Viagra in 2014, plus another $42.6 million on other brands of ED prescriptions. Since 2011, Pentagon spending on these drugs has topped $294 million, which is about equal to the cost of four F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.

    The reason for these prescriptions is less funny than my headline suggests: ED is unusually high among active-duty military and veterans because it’s linked to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Ongoing PTSD and an epidemic of military suicides have been a largely unseen consequence of the last 14 years of war.
