This kind of thing really frustrates those in government who want to tighten the belt on wasteful spending, including in the military, where there is plenty of waste. The Pentagon approved speciality uniforms for the Afghan army instead of giving them generic camouflage ones of our own, for free! 

Cost of that mistake? $28 million!
