(Note that September's total value of Defense contract awards was $128 billion, more than doubling August's $58 billion.)

To start off October military spending, the Army awarded its high contract for yesterday to Lockheed Martin for $631 million, with just one bid solicited. The work will involve foreign military sales to the Netherlands and Japan to procure a variety of Hellfire II missile variants.

International Auto Logistics won the next highest contract, worth $295 million to provide transportation of private vehicles belonging to military service members... your tax dollars at work.
