"DDM is very excited about this opportunity to help on yet another front in the Afghan war. McCurdy's Armor will be deployed with a specific mission and will be used in checkpoints designed to stop the movement and sale of drugs that Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations are using to fund terror missions that often kill Americans," said Joe Dimond, DDM's General Manager and 10-year Marine vet. "The Afghan border region is one of the most dangerous places in the world and the fact that there are people with the courage to go into this area and make an effort to stop the movement of weapons and drugs is remarkable.
