Afghanistan Through My Eyes - body armor - US Calvalry

Okay, I still haven't heard from ISAF, but I ordered my ballistic vest with the IV level ceramic plates and the disbursement plate and carry bag.

While I was ordering my helmet, sweet Juliet who was helping me and was once with the military police gave me a great tip on wearing the vest. She said to put a hankerchief in between your boobs...she didn't actually say boobs, but that is where she meant to put the hankerchief. She said you sweat like crazy and it gets very uncomfortable and itchy and can't just reach your hand in and scratch.

Is that sweet or what! Thank you Juliet for your words of wisdom.
