Kits: 70. Hometown: Chicago IL. Heard about us: Word of mouth. Duties: Infantry Vertical Assault Company, 7th and 5th Fleet AOR. Current Pads: Grey card board filled garbage. Comments: My name is [opsec deleted] I am the Company Commander with [opsec]. First off I want to thank you for the support you have shown to us over the years. Just prior to our last deployment you outfitted our unit with helmet pads. The difference you have made is immeasurable. As the [opsec] Marines my guys are often at the tip of the spear either in country or with the MEU. Recently we have spent a good deal of time supporting operations. Although we were fortunate not to have had any of my Marines shot in the helmet, we did have one Marine fall during fast roping from about 35 feet and hit his head on the flight deck (solid steel surface) and another Marine was hit by the
tailgate of a 7 ton truck which weighs about 60 lbs. In both cases neither Marine received any injury and I can guarantee it is due to the direct help you offered us. I am eternally grateful for what you do. I am sure there are other instances that occurred that I am not aware of as well as the additional secondary impacts of reduced amount of headaches, migraines, etc. when having to have a Kevlar or ECH on your head while on patrol or conducting defensive operations for days at a time. Currently, we are due to rotate again soon and over the past 2 years we have had over 70% rotation in forces with Marines getting promoted and going to different duties, as well as new guys coming to the unit after graduating Infantry Training Battalion.
We inventoried all of the Marines that received your helmet liners from the original 200 you provided us and identified that we are 70 units deficient. Even though we have been advertising to the Commanding General, Battalion Commanders, and anyone else that will listen the guys are still being issued the inferior gray cardboard filler type pads. I know your services are in
high demand but I was seeing if it was feasible to request 70 kits or whatever you can provide our unit in order to take care of these guys before we get out the door again. If for some reason this is not possible I was wondering if you could walk me through how you receive the discount for your kits or could my unit pool our funds together and send you a check to
purchase the kits. All of the young studs are definitely willing to pay out of pocket based on what their peers are using. My goal is to just remove as much financial obligation as possible. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you for your continued commitment. Capt, USMC
