Fort Campbell Soldiers put Female Body Armor Prototypes through paces

 

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Last summer, prototypes for new female body armor was distributed to select female 101st Airborne Division Soldiers at Fort Campbell, KY, for field-testing during an upcoming deployment to Afghanistan.

Gender-specific body armor has been, in many ways, a long time coming. Military clothing classically comes in two sizes: too big or too small. While this may be workable for garrison duty uniforms, it isn’t acceptable for protective gear.

Fort Campbell’s 44th Air Defense Artillery Regiment lights up Oklahoma’s sky with C-RAM Weapon System

 

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Sill, OK – A loudspeaker blared “incoming, incoming, incoming” and Soldiers immediately dropped to the ground. A Counter — Rocket, Artillery and Mortar gun whirred as the weapon system tracked the threat.

A four-second burst from the Gatling-type gun filled the air with tracer fire. Then the 300 rounds crackled as they exploded looking like a fireworks show that created a wall of flack which intercepted and destroyed the incoming mortar.

The Soldiers scrambled to their feet and headed toward a bunker.

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – I don’t know if there is a Guinness Book record for long council meetings, but I believe we would qualify after Thursday’s regular session. The meeting started at 6:55om Thursday and ended about 2:20am Friday morning.

Things started mild enough, then got feisty and progressed downhill to the point that at the end of the meeting Councilman James Lewis stormed over to Councilman David Allen as they were leaving and said he would see him outside. Police were requested to go outside to ensure the situation did not turn into a knock down and drag out affair.

So basically, it was a regular night at the Clarksville City Council. «Read the rest of this article»
