Gas! Gas! Gas!

Soldiers assigned to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, hold their M40-series protective masks above their heads to experience the full effects of CS Gas and highlight their equipments’ effectiveness during Mask confidence training at the Fort Carson Nuclear Biological and Chemical range, Aug 10, 2012. Staff Sergeant Jeffrey Lambert, CBRN noncommissioned officer, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, , said this final portion of the training demonstrates to soldiers just how effective pro-masks are. “During that last part, soldiers really feel that CS gas,” he said. “It’s hard to doubt your mask after trying to breathe in there without it.”
