Rather risk a head shot than wear the painful helmet (pads)!

10/20/17: Heard about us: Sniper buddy from 2nd Batt. 3rd Marines. Current pads: Shrink Wrapped Rocks. Glued. Grey. Ones black. All the words are worn off.. Comments: My issued pads are starting to rub my hair out of my head but more so I get headaches and would almost rather risk getting hit/possibly shot in the head. I can’t focus with a headache this intense.. Sgt, US Marines
