with all your gear
Got a message from my son, currently in a hot & sandy place. Among other bits:
We weighed my body armor today, 90lbs, thats with full battle load of ammo, shoulder guards, side plates, and other useful items.
What was that the other day about 'infantry is a young man's work'?
*No, I don't know what the 'other useful items' are, but I'm going to ask.
