Why is it necessary for our soldiers to have to purchase their own sleeping mat?
When we went to Kuwait in '03, we were issued foam mats, but they were pretty meager. I took my 3/4 therma-rest from backpacking with me, as it was much more comfortable. Also, with the heat, if they're still issuing the foam pads, I don't think they would hold up very well.
