Nov 28, 2016: From us to a requesting warrior: Clint: Have you let folks higher up in the food chain know about the problems with the current GI helmet pads? When I urge the military to undergo a cephalo-rectal extraction they assure me there’s NO problem with them. His response: “It’s something ive brought up with every equipment survey I ever done or when any COL or higher ask about gear. Ill never understand the army going from awesome green/black helmet pads in the ACH back in the day to the bricks they started putting in them after ACUs. (Army Combat Uniforms)” SSG, US Army.
