Why do you mother fuckers not wear eye protection during training?
too cool for that?
I spent > $100 on ballistic eye protection for my Army son because the Army Issue goggles fog up whenever they are worn by someone with a body temperature above freezing.
He better be wearing his eye protection!
I was watching Mail Call last night...they were at Ft Benning, no eye gear when shooting the m4
Did you get Wiley X?
umm just about every deploying unit in the last 2 years has recieved wiley Xs which are pretty good for army issue
m4 wont hurt you...
this is rather old photo but it shows us wearing eye protection in training with sim rounds... who are you you referring to not wearing eye protection?
They don't "where" eye protection
I was a little drunk last night when I made this thread
i dont wear it full stop,
When i was in basic doing quals with the m4 we only got a pair of crappy ass ear plugs
Um... that is incorrect. 3rd ID deployed with goggles in December/January.
my buddy deployed with 3rd id in that timeframe and he recieved goggles AND wiley xs
Okay. My son deployed in January and received goggles but didn't receive wiley's.
Hearing protection and eye protection are manditory on my ship.
If you get caught without them, stand by to stand by.
Edit: Actually, this goes for any PPE specifically needed for a given task.
That's strange man. I'm in an Ohio National Guard maintenance unit, basically at the bottom of the barrel. We got one pair of regular goggles, a pair of ESS goggles, and Wiley's.
my buddy was 11b hmmm maybe only infantry got it? that would be stupid though, everyone should get them
just saw that, yeah thats what we got for our africa deployment that got canned
