Gas! Gas! Gas!

Soldiers assigned to 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division exit the Fort Carson Nuclear Biological and Chemical building during Mask confidence training, Aug 10, 2012. During the last phase of the training, Soldiers take off their masks, hold them above their heads and recite their last name and the last four digits of their social security number as they exit the chamber. Staff Sgt. Jeffrey Lambert, CBRN noncommissioned officer, 1st Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 1st BCT, said this final portion of the training demonstrates to soldiers just how effective pro-masks are. “[Taking off their masks], soldiers really feel that CS gas,” he said. “It’s hard to doubt your mask after trying to breathe in there without it.”
