This is my kit. It includes helmet, ballistic goggles, backpack, ground sheet, first aid kit with sterile plastic wrap for sucking chest wounds, an M-16A2 rifle, combat ear plugs, 45 rounds of 9mm ammo, 90 rounds of 5.56mm ammo, my flak jacket, plus clean socks, underwear, and a tee shirt. Not pictured: My pistol, my notepad, and an additional 15 rounds of 9mm. When you say we will weigh in “with kit,” I just want you to know that this is NOT what I’m wearing to weigh in.
