So a facial hair no longer interferes with a gas mask?
fine with me
The original reason why armies forbade their soldiers from wearing beards is because it gave their enemy something to grab onto while they wielded their swords down on the neck.
It’s true that there aren’t too many sword fights in the war arenas these days, so one can only assume that this is Obama’s way of destroying morale and discipline amongst his military, probably in order to make them more easily controlled.
Or, it’s an appeasement his God, Allah. Beats me.
Yup, You got it. The dumbass with the fuzzy face is the first one done for when the mask is needed. And he’ll have fun in the gas tent. For my own part if the gas don’t get fuzz-boy I probly will because you have to know you can’t count on a person who is wrapped up in his own personal style/fad/ habit / etc. instead of the mission at hand. Clean it up. Button it down. Get your head on a swivel. And don’t stink with your own personal brand of fleur-de-stinkum so’s the neighbors don’t smell us coming. I hope there’s still a couple people left in the Pentagon who understand the reasons for sanitation, etc.
Actually, it probably doesn’t: gas masks are now part of full-body CBW suits, since a gas mask alone is useless against most modern chemical agents.
