Three Soldiers Asking for Help

These Three Soldiers Are Asking for Help

29 Sep 2014: Kits: 1. Hometown: Foothill Ranch, CA. Heard about us: Duties: Infantry. Current Pads: Army issue pads.. Pad, Helmet, Advanced Combat. Comments: Thank you for your support. SGT, US Army

28 Sep 2014: Kits: 9. Hometown: red bluff, CA. Heard about us: Duties: line medic/MEV medic. Current Pads: issued pads. they are terrible.. Comments: i am requesting pads for myself and my line medics. i supervise 8 guys. we are supposed to go on a training mission a few months. we are stationed at fort [opsec] and we are doing a long predeployment training before being sent out. im trying to get my guys squared away before we leave. the issue pads we have are terrible and we are all guilty of putting our personal comfort over safety because wearing helmets for long periods of time is painful. i want my men to wear their ACH all the time so we dont have any accidental/preventable injuries.

28 Sep 2014: Kits: 1. Hometown: LaGrange, GA. Heard about us: Internet. Duties: Combat Training Center Observer, Controller/ Trainer, Mentor. Current Pads: Issued Gentex Corp 3/4″ pads NSN: 8470-01-546-9407. Comments: Current issued pads are a few years old, hard, worn, and give me a headache. They hold too much heat, which is bad when temps regularly hit 110’F during the summer months. I have never tried any aftermarket pads, but have been told by several people that you highly recommend the OA pads. We wear our helmets for anywhere from 12-36 hours at a time for 14 days straight while training rotational units passing through. I will be making recommendations to other OC/T’s and Soldiers in rotational units conducting pre-deployment training prior to going overseas. CPT, US Army
