Reminds me of a similar incident at a place I used to work... Not
military related though.

Back in 1990 or so the company bought a new NEC PABX. Not ready to
install it, they stored it in the warehouse on it's original pallet
pending installation.

The warehouse cleaner came along, saw a big empty looking box on a pallet
sitting next to his rubbish pallets, grabbed a forklift and dumped it into
the rubbish truck.

Worth about $70,000 and was never recovered.
