Submitted by: kitteh9lives 6 years ago in Misc

Soldiers test their limits by answering questions in a tent full of tear gas, without their mask. Could you pass?

That is nothing compared to law enforcement OC spray testing.

Been there. Cheated. Spent a weekend desensitizing ourselves to CS with used canisters provided by our Drill-Sergeants. Painful? Stupid? Yes. But the look on the other platoons` Drills` faces was priceless when we looked them right in the eye, maskless, and had only mild reactions to the tablets.

I got a stomach full of puke on my back from the guy behind me when I did this. We didn`t have to answer questions or talk but we did have to stand there w/o our masks for a period of time.

I`m in the Australian Army and I`ve done lots of tear gas training. These guys aren`t acting - tear gas is f....d!

Had to do the same thing in boot. This is one of the worst feelings I`ve ever felt. After that first breath every single pour in your face opens. Eyes, nose, mouth. It`s virtually impossible to speak. The point of the test is to trust your equipment.

That poo is an invention straight from Hell. When I went through basic I was already drated when I got the the TI because my mask leaked. One trainee took off running as soon as he took his mask off and bowled over a female MSgt on his way out. Hes not in the military any more lol

I like how rather than agree with whatever football team the Sgt asked, they stubbornly went with "No!" and then waited for the chance to blurt out the team they really do like.

One of my Warrant Officers was in charge of administering the training and all that for the gas hut (NBCD) and after 15 years of doing it every week, he is immune to it. He says he still feels the itchiness, but can resist the urge to scratch, but the eyes don`t water, the nose doesn`t run, and he can still breathe (although the oxygen level is lower, so it`s not "as" easy" but he can still do it).

I then took both hands, pushed the mask against my face and took 3 big breaths, and regained part of my composure, having prevented fainting, I then held my breath as I took off the mask, put it back on and go through the procedure of removing the gas from the mask.

45 seconds later, I was back to being sweaty, itchy, teary and out of breath...but at least I could breathe.

So yeah, it looks easy, but be weary, it packs a hell of a punch.

To those who think it`s a piece of cake.

While waiting for my squad`s turn to go into the NBCD shed, we waited outside. All of us were sweaty from being in the suits in 25C heat. The sweat very quickly became extremely itchy, our eyes started to tear and burn, our noses became faucets. Then came our turn to go in the hut, take a breath, then put on our gas masks.

With all this sweat, itchy, snotty crap, inside our gas masks, we are then subjected to a very fresh, very intense dose of CS gas, and then asked to do some PT (on the spot running, jumping jacks, etc) to get the breathing rate up. My gas mask suddenly came loose, I gasped for air, unable to breath, I struggle through the gloves to tighten the gas mask, which created a hole on the other side, more gas!

Out-of-breath, gasping for air, hyper-ventilating, I blurt out "I can`t brea..."

SHUT THE drat UP! says the nice drill sgt.

I`ve had to go through these CS tents a few times in my military career, and the suckage is in direct proportion to how many CS pellets the soldiers running the tent melt at a time. These guys didn`t have it too bad, but it doesn`t take much to make it uncomfortable. I remember a couple of times when there was so much CS in the tent you could barely see the other side. It makes it almost impossible to open your eyes or talk. All you can do is stand with drool and snot running out of your head. Some can`t take it and flip out and run around the tent until they can be led to the door. It`s pretty funny watching everyone outside the tent propping their eyelids open until their tears wash it all out. It actually gets easier the more times you go through it because you know what to expect. It still sucks, it just sucks less.

They got me three times when I first joined the airforce. Once for basic, again for Med-red, and then again for something called FTAC. I was starting to think gassing me was becoming the national past time.

At basic training if our instructors didn`t like anyone they`d keep them talking for ages and ask them extra questions...... which was fine for one welsh guy we had who didn`t seem to be effected by CS even after they had him singing the whole of Men of Harlech.

The end bit with breathing it in is only the end of the test (in the uk anyway) the main bit of it is doing all your decontam drills first to simulate more serious chemicals.

You might want to change your region if you are in Texas. You have yourself living in South America...way different than the southern US. YEEHAW!

They`re really nice about it in this. In basic training, we got hit and yelled at while we were in there.

Nobody from Texas says, "YEEHAWW!!!1" And I have been in Texas all my life. Aside from that, I found this pretty amusing. I have never breathed tear gas before but I can imagine its not fun. xD

Their problem is that they didnt take a deep breath before taking the mask off. Any soldier/officer will tell you, the first thing you do is take a deep breath.

That is awesome fun with the tears streaming down and your lungs on fire and snot pouring out your nose into your mouth! Those were the days, yes sir!

but boy the pussied that down!
when I was in boot camp you had to YELL your rank, name, platton, and service number then make your way through a maze to find the exit on your own.

No one patted your shoulder or led you away or said "good job".

wimps.

We had to sing the Happy Birthday song for one of the instructors daughters when I went through Navy Boot camp, only about 1/2 of us got all the way through. The bodybuilder in our group tried to bolt for the door and the Instructors made him wait inside the door until everyone else left before he could leave. I actually was in worse condition in the blackout smoke escape chamber then the teargas chamber. Non-Irritating smoke is a misnomer if you have minor allergies....

Should be basic training for those interested in civil disobedience-along with tactical strategies and defensive/offensive training.

Looks like basic training, they usually make you answer questions or say where you use to live and things like that without a mask. They make you line up to leave and if anyone even walks faster for the door they line everyone back up and walk them outside again. At least that`s my understanding of the tear gas chamber.
