Gunfighter Diary Desert Shield 04 Aug 90

4 AUG 90 Sat
Spent the weekend taking stock of what gear we have and are going to need. As OIC of Aviation Life Support Systems (Flight Equipment), we have to make sure everyone has NVGs, gas masks, flight suits, gloves, jackets, survival vests, flotation gear, body armor etc...My Marines are making me look good, as they have everything we need and are out scrounging extra gear. We could use a few spare HSS helmets for the Cobras, they are issued one per seat and hard to come by. We would like one per pilot, so they don’t have to be refit every mission. What a hosed up system.
