    Yeah, MOPP 4.

    Suit, Boots, Mask, and gloves. For some reason I still have my BDO training gear even though we're issued the JSLIST. I really need to clean up my mask before I leave next week, though. Just picked up a new second skin from supply today, too.

    For those that don't know, if it's about 32 degrees, MOPP 4 sucks. Luckily for me some of the best times I spent in MOPP 4 included The State of Hawaii, noontime and flak vest....................................:D

    Yeah, there's no real good way to describe MOPP 4 other than to get someone dressed up in it. Worst I had was all day in Texas heat :( I couldn't see worth a ****, my specs fogged after about 1 minute.

    The MOPP dance was even funnier than him all dressed up in his MOPP 4 gear. I so totally wish I had my camera with me. Would have been some funny pictures. :D

    I think that I might have intimidated him a little with all the laughing I did because of how funny he looked.

    MOPP is gay. Try getting around a ship whne MOD Z is set in full MOPP gear. Even better when it is well above 100f in the gulf.

    Let me say it again..........GAY

    The military isn't the only one who does that. I can still hear the sounds of "masks off" ringing in my ears decades later.....

    ever worn a level A suit? 1/4 in thick rubber chem suit that makes the MOPP suits feel like a swim suit. I'll post a pic tonight. Maybe even a couple pics of 105 artillery rounds full of VX nerve agent.

    Ah yes, good times. Yeah, MOPP 4 sucks without 100* weather and high humidity.
    Yes we are all FULLY aware of your opinion. Maybe some day we can sit down around the campfire and discuss your point of view, but until then......:wink1:
