Gunfighter Diary Desert Shield 06 Aug 90

6 AUG 90 Mon

What’s an AR-5? There is a new aviator gas mask that we want to take with us. Supply has all the parts, and there is a rep coming up from North Island to help my Marines put them all together. Forced air to the mask and the hood, the blower runs off batteries or ship's power. This should be fun, getting a mod put in the aircraft at this point to power these puppies. Inventorying body armor, aka chicken plates, so far we have enough.
