  • Anyone in need of gas masks?

    Father is back from Iraq and while at the squadron noticed the 4 M40 gas masks that his buddy from Rapides Parish SO was supposed to pick up, had not been picked up. So, knowing that I frequent these forums and have LE friends, he asked if I knew anyone that would be interested.

    Let me know if any of you want one, or two, or the whole lot of 4.

        Just wondering, if you sprayed a closed area would these gas mask allow you to keep going without any effect ?

            Yeah, in the gas chamber back in the military your in a little cold concrete room/building they pop a can (or burn) some CS/tear gas and your mask is on and sealed. You can sit in there all day and feel no effects, the moment you break that seal

                  JP, I didn't know you were jarhead also, damn where have I been. To bad you didn't go to a real depot though (H o l l y w o o d )

                  Seriously, did they give you a choice? They did when I went, told me Louisiana got to pick due to the Miss. River. I had always wanted to go to California particularly southern Cali so I chose Diego. Glad I did I had a blast when I got out of bootcamp and the southern cali party started in S.O.I. then I got stationed at Pendelton, loved it. Didn't even notice the left coast nuts. I guess I was young enough at that time not to worry about stuff like politics As much as I loved it I couldn't live there today.

                    Still have my boot camp issue sunglasses and a souvenir bottle of MCRD San Diego suntan lotion.

                    The beach at San Clemente was awesome in the spring. You know, all the California girls breaking out their new bikinis. (And some of them breaking out OF their new bikinis.)

                    Semper Fi, guys.

                      Yeah the summer from hell in 2002 with Killer Kilo and the Thundering Third. We were told that New Orleans was the exception when it came to the whole "West of the Mississippi to San Diego", we were forced to go to Paris Island though I was happy as I didn't want to be known as a Hollywood Marine. I hear they allow you go to a MLB Padre's game during training and let you wear sunglasses Nothing like a little ribbing haha

                      Spent a year in Okinawa, and the rest in Lejeune. Glad I stayed on the east coast(minus the overseas base of course), California has too many differences from here. Some days I miss it, but mostly I'm glad I got out and became a cop. Still have my blues hanging in the closet, but I'm sure I could never fit in them again. Been meaning to go to the Birthday Ball up at Baton Rouge, though I never was very motto when it came to those things.

                      @cajunguy- That's the only good thing, yall had beaches!!! I had to deal with rednecks and johnny rebs, no hotties around those parts.

                        Yeah, the beaches were fun. But only when we weren't doing amphibious landing drills.

                        Almost hate to admit it, but this was back in the early 1960's.

                            Ak sorry I hijacked your thread, feel free to keep using it LOL!

                            yeah, the 60's that was the old Corps
                            JP, we did have our beaches and downtown Diego, I'v created some very fond memories in Horton Plaza. As well as the beaches
                            My first 6mo in San Diego IE....bootcamp and S.O.I. it didn't rain once. Beautiful weather, you can plan a picknick outside 3mo in advance and it won't rain. Yall had the sand fleas that I'v heard so much about, we had MOUNTAINS, big *** mountains. The Grim Reaper, The microwave, 1SG's hill, Recon Ridge. You have to climb the Grim Reaper to graduate 2nd phase when I was in. That was before they reorganized bootcamp with the crucible. I was a NCO when they implemented the crucible. We use to have 3 phases.

                            1st Phase: MCRD San Dog, wore uniform buttoned all the way up like a nerd, cuffs on pants rolled up like a bigger nerd. Head completely balled (or butchered) no name tapes except a plastic tab that you wrote your name on that clipped on to a shirt pocket button.

                            2nd Phase: Camp Pendelton for field phase and which included range. You got to unbutton your top button but still rolled your trouser bottoms. Final task on 2nd phase is make the death march up the Grim Reaper or get recycled.

                            3rd Phase back to MCRD San Dog for more Green Machine BS to include swim qual final tests, final drill, and getting your class A's fitted and ready. Were not allowed to wear the EGA at all until graduation morning before getting dressed they informed everyone to put their EGA's on the uniform. While wearing cammies in phase 3 you finally got to get a high and tight haircut and wear your trousers bloused and look like a Marine. You received your Cammies in this phase with your name tape that had your name and said "MARINE" however, they were to go inside your sea bag and not to see daylight until you graduate. You will wear the last set of no name cammies for the entire month. We put on PT gear and washed uniforms twice a month on a concrete wash rack where you scrubbed them under a facet much like on the side of a house. Then hung them to dry. This is also the phase where you were allowed to make your 2nd and last phone call of your stay, to say hey it looks like I'm going to graduate on this date and this time be here if you want gotta go, BYE!
                            I recall recruits on graduation morning dragging *** getting the we're finished mode turned on and the DI's ripped our hide off our backsides. We got IT'd (smoked) before getting dressed and they smoked us in class A's standing on post in the barracks. Then marching to our graduation staging area, they said we were looking like 1st phasers and chewed our *** for being sloppy and said we were about to embarass them, so they stopped us.

                            Platoon Halt,
                            Half left FACE,
                            front leaning rest position MOVE......in CADENCE 1,2,3,4...1,2,3,4,...etc......

                            They were telling us we would not graduate and that they would march us right back upstairs and repeat this phase and that we were still recruits until the Battalion Commander officially declared us Marines, blah blah blah.

                            We finally made it to the grinder and stood at Parade rest, Attention, Parade rest again etc.......Then the moment came after all this jibber jabber of the speakers.

                            Ladies and Gentlemen not once in their 12 weeks have these men been called Marine, it has been Recruit among other names [pause for applause and laughter] But today, and right now it is my pleasure to be the first to call them MARINES, Battalion ATTENTION!, good morning MARINES!!!, (then we reply loudly, good morning sir!) You have endured, sacrificed, and answered the challenge, and now we have a new mission for you, go forward an succeed, Drill instructors, dismiss your plts.

                            Drill instructors, "Platoon 1 thousand 54 DISMISSED!!!!!(we took one step back and yelled Hooo-Rah

                            That was verbatim what was said, and I'll never ever forget it. That was in 95, I ran into that same Battalion commander at Camp Victory, Iraq in the chow hall. I was now in the Army's 82nd Airborne Division. We had dinner together and I recited those words to him almost 10yrs later. He ribbed me for changing branches, but told me not to tell anyone, but he to always admired and wanted to be a member of the famed 82nd Airborne, just said Marines were in his blood and generations. Ah, those were some great days

                              LOL no worries, all the chit chat brings more views, and in turns brings more people wanting these super duper awesome masks!

                              I'll be looking forward to all of this once I complete school and go Air Force... of course it won't be any Marine bootcamp, as I've heard the AF is A LOT easier.
