Air Wing...Pilot Question....
Went on a road trip to North Carolina and stayed at the campgrounds on CLNC....
Went to the air station at New River on my way to Camp Geiger and stopped to vacuum out my truck.
Looked in the trash can on the vac island and saw a few thrown away survival packs.
In the packs there were various survival items.....
H20 Purification Tablets
Fishing line...hooks...splitshot sinkers
Non Lubricated Condom
If one goes down at sea and happens to survive and makes it to land....is the condom used as a water bladder so it can be purified.....by filling with H20....putting in a few tabs.....tying off the end....and using the drip tip to drink......?
Just wondering and askin'......in the grunts we were not issued this type of gear.

And I always used them on the business end of my gun.
Learning something new, every day. Ain't life grand?
Never had any issued.

They work real well over the flash suppressor of a M-14, to keep the monsoon chit out of your barrel.
Keeps stuff in with the gun, keeps stuff out with the rifle. You just have to be smart enough to know the difference, and for those who wear their cap bill sideways on their head, there is no correcting stupid. Kind of in there with "pants on the ground".
IF SOMEONE WITH MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES THREATENS TO KILL HIMSELF, IS IT
CONSIDERED A HOSTAGE SITUATION?

I know what you use them for.....
But surprised me to see them in a survival kit....
I know they can be used to protect sand and mud in the muzzle....flash surpressor and barrel....
I guess it all depends where you make it to land at.....if you use them on your gun............

It is my opinion that pilots throw away a lot of stuff that still has some use in it. I can understand what they do for the flight pay but I don't know what they do to earn the base pay.
