US Fleet Forces Explores Protective Clothing Solutions

first_img View post tag: solutions View post tag: News by topic Equipment & technology Commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command reached out to fleet leaders in a Navy message Dec. 12 to ensure Sailors understand the minimal flame resistant qualities of the Navy Working Uniform Type I.Adm. Bill Gortney explained the current requirement for working uniforms and organizational clothing and discussed recent uniform testing results.“In coordination with the uniform board, Adm. Haney (Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet) and I will continue to review the requirements for, and flame-resistant qualities of, working uniforms including the Type I NWUs,” Gortney explained in his message.The latest push for awareness stems from an impromptu test the Navy Clothing Textile Research Facility conducted Oct. 15, in Natick, Mass. The test reinforced the fact that the NWU Type I is not flame-resistant.“We will explore long-term solutions that afford our Sailors the right protective clothing, aligned with the tasks they are required to perform in various operating environments,” said Gortney.In 2012, fire-retardant NWU Type II/III and coveralls became part of the Navy’s organizational clothing inventory. The Navy began issuing flame resistant organizational gear (FROG) I and II, in the NWU Type II and III pattern, to Navy ground force personnel deploying to Afghanistan and those conducting operations in environments where improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are a common threat.Navy leadership removed the flame-resistant requirements from NWUs in 1996, and commands since then have been required to purchase flame-resistant organizational clothing for Sailors.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 13, 2012; Image: US Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: forces US Fleet Forces Explores Protective Clothing Solutions View post tag: explores December 13, 2012center_img View post tag: fleet Back to overview,Home naval-today US Fleet Forces Explores Protective Clothing Solutions View post tag: Navy View post tag: Protective View post tag: Clothing View post tag: US Share this articlelast_img read more

‘Title win is a milestone for Liverpool but cannot be the last one’

first_imgJurgen Klopp has said winning the Premier League ‘is a milestone’ for Liverpool but it will not be the last one for the club. Klopp and his players will be presented with the championship trophy at Anfield on Wednesday night live on Sky Sports after their game against Chelsea. It will end a 30-year wait for the title at the club but Klopp is adamant it cannot be allowed to be one-off achievement. “It’s 100 per cent one of the greatest days in my life, to finally get my hands on this trophy when everybody was waiting to get their hands on it,” he said. “Two or three years ago nobody thought it would be possible for us so I will be proud of the boys and it’s a milestone, we should see it like that. “It’s a very important day but not the last very important day for us. We will be in very good spirits. “It’s a little like Christmas – even if you know what present you are getting, it’s still exciting when you get it.”Advertisement Liverpool go into the Chelsea game having dropped eight points in their past five games, comfortably the worst run of the season but one which has occurred with the title already secured. Klopp feels that issue was similar to the one which played the Bayern Munich side with which he competed for Bundesliga championships during his time in charge of Borussia Dortmund. “When Pep Guardiola was at Bayern and we came second to them quite frequently, it was the same thing – they would dominate the league until they became champions and after that, they would lose some games,” he said. read also:Klopp makes strong season refusal after Liverpool defeat to Arsenal “Bayern would have nothing to go for then but I’m really happy with how we have showed up. It was nothing obvious, it was not that we lost focus here or there. We were the better side against Arsenal but lost for obvious reasons. “So I can’t really explain it. We have had an outstanding season and I’m not willing to make that smaller.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… center_img Promoted ContentWhat Happens To Your Brain When You Play Too Much Video Games?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksThe Best Actors To Start Their Careers On Soaps8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterYou’ve Only Seen Such Colorful Hairdos In A Handful Of AnimeCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?Birds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For ThemThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.
