Situational Awareness Reduced by Discomfort

Kits: 30. Hometown: Fort Bragg. Heard about us: Google/previous experience. Duties: Infantry. Current Pads: Team Wendy pads. Comments: Hello, We are currently using the team wendy/Ceradyne pads right now. Despite the Army’s push for better helmets (ECH) we all have the Team Wendy/Ceradyne pads that cause massive headaches and discomfort. Our current situation has us wearing NODs for long periods of time and the discomfort they cause takes away from the situational awareness we’re required to have for our mission set. 3 years ago I deployed to Afghanistan and someone had ordered your pads for us and I can’t tell you how much more combat effective it made us/brought up our morale. Unfortunately, after 4 years, the pads have been destroyed. We’re currently operating at high altitudes and the last thing we have to think about is how bad our head hurts while our lungs and legs are screaming at us on a patrol. It would be awesome if your organization could help us out, and I know it’d bring joy to all the soldier’s within my platoon. Thank you in advance, -A Paratrooper who will always use the pads you provide us soldiers until I’m forced not to do so.

Written on them: it’s from gentex corporation NSN 8470-01-546-9407 Color: Grey Attach with velcro/. Comments: The Unit is moving around the area of [opsec] and performing Construction jobs with the ACH while in the mean time performing security.

Kits: 5. Hometown: queens new york. Heard about us: USO. Duties: convoy operations. Current Pads: green pads all of the labels are washed out. Comments: I would really appreciate your guys help with the kits. I’ve put in a request to change them out with the unit but they said they wont be able to do it so if you guys can send me 5 kits that would cover myself and my squad. Thanks for all that you do for us.. SPC, US Army

Kits: 4. Heard about us: Google. Duties: EOD work. Current Pads: Skydex. Comments: Just found your website and saw what you guys are doing. The current pads my team are using make wearing a helmet uncomfortable for multiple hours while conducting EOD operations. Any type of upgrade for a helmet is a hot commodity for us! Thank you for all you do! SGT, US Army
