Subject: GPSs needed

I am seeking some assistance in obtaining six "Garmin Foretrex 401 GPS" units for my son's outfit in Afghanistan. It seems that the Army will authorize it's use but will not provide it...duh! They have GPS units in their vehicles but since they are in a very high and rugged area, a lot of their patrol work is done on foot. Thus the need for a good portable unit like the Garmin Foretrex 401 GPS. They have 6 three-man teams and each team leader needs one. Well at about $200 a pop I can afford to send them a couple at the most. Does anyone have any ideas about where such an item can be obtained for a reasonable price or perhaps a retailer who might be willing to donate a few. It's a shame the Army won't supply something these guys need. I thought I'd throw this out there for some ideas.
