I am about to go on my first deployment to the CENTCOM area of responsibility. I've been told that we will be fairly isolated and should pack to expect slow supply delivery. Ive stocked up on hygiene and and clothing, but what are some not necessarily essential items for a combat deployment but that you would always want? Anything that may make life a little better!

A good headlamp and crocs. Crocs are years ahead of anything else for shower shoes.

Pony up for a Petzl headlamp. Cheap is not the way to go for tools.

SGT (Join to see) sometimes you gotta spell it out for people. You know, just in case.

SFC (Join to see) True. Then perhaps use the correct terminology, which in this case would be a "Spank Drive," for example.

Try to find out if their is internet service for a laptop. Make sure your flip flops are thick. Flashlight. Small alarm clock. 550 chord. Leatherman. Goggles. Sharpie. Talk to the medics to get cravats to use to protect your face from the dust.
