Soldier Survives Being Shot In The Head
In this instance, wearing full battle rattle is definitely worth it.
I’m pretty sure every swinging dick in my
platoon battalion complained about having to wear Kevlar helmets while on post, or patrol(mounted or dismounted)… I remember thinking to myself, “It’s over 120 degrees and the C.O. wants us to wear all this shit?” At the end of the day, this soldier is still alive because he was wearing a Kevlar helmet.
He probably hated to wear it just as much as the rest of us.
