Spiffy new helmet (ECH), crappy old pads

Here’s the word from Afghanistan: Hometown: Fresno, CA. Heard about us: Friend. Duties: Infantry. Current Pads: Pad, Helmet advanced combat, grey, hard pads. NSN 8470-01-546-9407. Comments: These current pads that were issued with our ECH’s are hard they hurt and apply unwanted pressure on our heads. Each patrol we go on my soldiers are focused on the pain they are in from the pads we currently have.. SGT, US Army.

Of course we outfitted his platoon, sending the order in to the factory today, Memorial Day 2016. So proud of the Great Americans who pitch in and help us keep on keeping on for those who voluntarily serve and protect at great threat to themselves.
