While I was in the CANG (California National Guard) I did the unthinkable I have burried untold thousands of M-16, M-16A1 M-60, MOPP Suites, gas masks, Body armour, and many other items that we were not told about. Everyone has seen the sea-land conatiners correct. Well imagan sitting in front of 50 of them lined up end to end knowning that 3 were full of M-16 and 4 full of M-60's and the rest were a mix of web gear and MOPP gear.
We were allowed to raid the MOPP (Mission Orentined Proctive Posture) containers I came out with 10 suites and 5 gas masks. I also came out with 3 complete sets of web gear Kevlar LBE pistol belt ammo pouches. I tried to get an M-16 and a M-60 but that was a no go.
This is nothing new to anyone in the military. What do you think happens when things break and or wear out?
We dug a ditch as long as 200 of the sea land containers We placed the 50 in the ditch and burried them. Then once we were done with that we got to clean out bunkers of 60 year old TNT. That was so much fun we would take a LAW rocket and open the bunker doors and shoot the LAW into the bunker and watch the fireworks.
