As awesome as it may seem, it gets really hot with the kit on. Felt like there was a faucet slowly pouring water over my face at some point during the exercises. I honestly felt like I couldn't rehydrate fast enough. Luckily it got cooler later in the day.
Well, truth be told, the budget of HDF is small enough as it is. But of course everyone's aware that even this small funding is being stolen and/or stuffed to useless crap project which was won by companies owned by people who are friends of the right people in the board... Still, the result is that the HDF's combat readiness is a joke.
Not like we have any other choice, do we?... But it's fine, my contract ends on september 30 next year, and I don't plan to stay any longer in this joke of an army. Until then, well, I manage somehow .
