    p.s;any of you lads use battle vests as opposed to chestrigs?Thought i saw a few pictures of lads wearing them. :tri:
    Some guys bought their own vests, but you're honestly better off with PLCE.

          The post is woeful: delivery times range from 7 days to never.

            Been so long since I was in the army I have no Idea what kind of clothing they supply you with but try to bring Lowe alpine breathable clothing.Stay clear of cotton and the like it just retains sweat and wet and weighs twice as much.

              drumpark you really must be out awhile.We get issued two sets of Lowe alpine dryflo underwear now.One for winter(long sleeves and long bottoms)and one for summer(shorts and t-shirt).Great in the heat and warm in the cold.About time the dept started issuing us decent gear!

His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms.

                            well we may get uniforms but it would be nice for things not to fall apart like the boots which wore through but you already talked about them before

                              What was the scale of issue of the m203 in liberia? Did guys have it attached to their personal weapons or was it kept in stores?Also what was the first line ammo for it.Just curious.
