    One thing I am concern about is the sand that goes through your nostril when you are driving, same for troopers, comanders.

    Breathing in too much sand is not good for the lungs. There should be a standard item to prevent this for everyone in the vehicle. Health is most important nowadays.

    well, you can't expect the army to provide you with every single thing rite? Dust is problem but nothng a damp camo scarf won't solve.

    strange none of my drivers ever have such problems. I myself drive also don't have such problem, only sweat that's all. maybe you need to train up more.

    on second thought maybe you should go and geng downgrade. I'm sure your troopers and commander all very scared you drive halfway fainted at the controls.

    I am not sure if this is effective as it is not something that is proven to keep out the dust.

    since you are an A-veh driver, I suggest you talk to your commander and your encek. do you also not have a driving goggle?

    It depends on what vehicle you drive. I have never fallen sick since the first day I drive the vehicle; I was just describing other drivers. Maybe you drive other vehicles and you don't see the problem.

    Never heard of the face mask before. That must be decades ago. Alright, I ORD some ten years ago; I have never heard of any face mask for drivers at all.

    Even if you wear a mask, can you fit in the helmet?

    No, I have never heard of it before. Not in our unit nor other units besides ours. This is not a standard item, if it is, then every members of the units should receive one.
