Detroit TV Station Investigates The Growler
By Roger Charles

Last year DefenseWatch did two articles on the Expeditionary Fire Support System, more specifically on the prime mover for the towed mortar, which we tagged "Catto's Cart," in honor of the two-star Perfumed Prince who was instrumental in foisting this POS onto the Corps.

The two links below are to the web site of the Detroit ABC affiliate, Channel 7, WXYZ, that aired a few days ago its own, excellent investigation on the Growler. The first link is the story, and the second is a hidden-camera tour of the Growler plant, followed by a confrontation with the owner. The two videos speak for themselves, so without further ado, ck 'em out.

First, the investigative piece by the Detroit station: WXYZ Multimedia Steve Wilson Investigates the Growler: http://www.wxyz.com/cr/cda/player/1,1272,WXYZ_49805_320_240,00.html

And, here's the video (with heavily "bleeped" audio) of the tour of the plant and the subsequent confrontation with retired Marine colonel Curtis T. "Terry" Crews: Watch the Confrontation: http://www.wxyz.com/cr/cda/player/1,1272,WXYZ_49803_320_240,00.html

So, which vehicle would you want to take to war?
