taking the pads out just to sub a towel or a small pillow

Kits: 13. Hometown: Sumter, SC. Heard about us: I looked up anything that could help my team on google and i asked around here in the AOR.. Duties: Base Security/QRF. Current Pads: They are brown and Velcro.. Comments: I am requesting new pads because the ones that we were issued was worn and outdated. Many of the pads as well as the helmets have seen many tours. I know this to be a fact considering my base has the highest deployment rate for a stateside base. I would love a care package to share with my fellow airmen on our FAST and our QRF teams. One more thing is that because we are in these MATVs we have to wear them for a full shift (13-15 hours) and a lot of people complain and some end up taking the pads out just to sub a towel or a small pillow.
