Sliding on my armor plate carrier (tactical vest) over my head and strapping the velcro into place. Adjusting everything and making sure I am good to go. My partner Chief Holland check my vest over, double checking everything when he turned me around and said, “man, that vest is awesome and looks great.” I told him I got it from Spartan Armor Systems. It was their Warrior Assault System and was built for us warriors. We both laughed and I grabbed my weapon.
Leaving the briefing room, we were split up into two groups. Air assault and boat assault. Of course this time I
Up and over the rail I go, followed by my team! Grabbed my weapon and away I go. The air assault team made their way along the deck searching everywhere they went. Up and down until they made their way to their objective.was assigned to the boat assault. Made my way to the boat and off we went. Watched as team “Air” made their way off the ship and towards our target. This was a timed assault, just as the air assault hit we would hit from below. Time was now! The other team hit the deck running as we prepared to climb the ladder. Moved my rifle over to the side while on my sling and started my way up. The straps on this warrior assault Vest allowed my arms free motion in a 360 degree rotation that did not stop any motion for me to climb. You know when you do climb, sometimes the vest will ride up on you. Not this time or with this vest! The warrior assault vest from Spartan held right where it needed to as I made my climb up.
On the lighter side, we made our way to the lower deck with narrow hallways and more dangers lurking after every corner. I am what the line would call the, “Point man” because I was in the lead. The team would trust my judgement. All of the sudden I made contact in the hallway. I felt and heard a noise but could not determined what it was, but I eliminated the threat. We made our way down to the &^%$*( room and call secured. You could hear over the radio as the rest of the team called their area secure as well. Mission complete! One thing though? The noise I heard was a rifle shot and one of my teammates check me out because he though I was hit. Sure enough I was, but with Spartan level 3 plates, it took the licking so I can still be ticking!
