Gas! Gas! Gas!

Soldiers assigned to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, lift M40-series protective masks from their faces in a room full of chlorobenzylidene malononitrile (CS) Gas to test their masks’ effectiveness during confidence training at the Fort Carson Nuclear Biological and Chemical range, Aug 10, 2012. “[Soldiers] really need to take this training seriously,” said Sgt. Denver Stennet, CBRN specialist, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 1st BCT. “If you get into a situation where you need to use your mask and you’ve never done this before, chances are you won’t get it on in time, or you won’t use it properly.”
