Amber Status in AFghanistan

RE:  Rules of Engagement and Weapon Status

Jeffrey Schogol who writes the Rumor Doctor column for the Stars & Stripes followed up on one soldier's claim that his unit was dismounted patrolling in Amber (no round chambered):

...The Rumor Doctor heard from a soldier in a military police company in eastern Afghanistan who said his unit was under orders not to have a round in the chamber when going outside the wire.

The unit the company had replaced was under a similar order, which company noncommissioned officers said came from higher, the soldier said...

The outcome is something you all would be interested in reading so go over to the Rumor Doctor and read about what happened next.
