    I here you were always first to volunteer as dressing up as the Highness Amphitrite every time your ship crossed the equator.

    If it was just a made up rumor of you're former shipmates, never mind then.

    I crossed the line twice during the 1970's but not on a Navy ship but on a sloop. No real celebration, more concerned with how long were we going to be stuck in the doldrums.

    They're going into a disease hot zone. PPE might be required. Yes, I do see how easy that is.

    And why on earth would you not expect a knee-jerk outrage without thinking? Why doesn't the shameless GOP politicizing of health and death over Ebola, beheadings, Putin, Benghazi and the rest bother people? Or Boehner refusing an Ebola hearing for 6 weeks until last week ?

    PPE would be required if they were handling Ebola patients.

    I don't think there are many Ebola patients hanging around construction sites.

    "Disease Hot Zone"

    Unless you're talking about the more popular brothels during port stops I'm not sure what you're talking about.

    Sounds to me like your picture of the situation is somewhere between a Hollywood film and a far right wing paranoia horror scenario.

    Are these soldiers coming into direct contact with sick people?

    Are they treating and coming into contact with their fluids?

    Do you believe Ebola is floating as a huge toxic cloud over this region?

    If the answer is no to any of these questions than hazmat suits are not required.

    So, you are advocating for government waste, eh? You want them to spend money on something they probably don't need.... if any department of government is good at spending money on things they don't need its the DoD...

    You have so little faith in the competence of our military that you think our commanders would take troops into harm's way ill-prepared? Don't you think they were briefed by experts and have outfitted the troops in accordance with the needs and risks of the mission?

    Me thinks you just like getting it up (your blood pressure) by surfing the web in search of good political smut. Go back and try again and we will shoot something else down that you find on a political porn site.

    And in fact, in some situations it may be required. In those situations, they should have it. And in fact, they have been trained in it for the mission. Soldiers briefed, trained for tough Ebola mission

    Following the briefing, there was extensive training on how to wear the protective gear – protective masks, boots, gloves (two pairs minimum and three pairs recommended) and Tyvex suits.
    Every soldier was required to don the gear and go through the decontamination process, aided by West Virginia Army National Guard full-time personnel of the 35th CST (Civil Support Team) and CERFP (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, High-Explosive Emergency Response Force Package) personnel.

    Also note from the same article:

    "Our mission," said DeSantis, "in support of the USAID-led effort, is to, one, build Ebola treatment units, which are being built to identify Ebola patients, as well as care for them. Two, our mission is to train health care workers who will be the actual ones to treat Ebola patients, to staff those treatment units. That's our two missions."
    For this mission, called Operation Unified Assistance (OUA), the 101st contingent is primarily headquarters personnel to coordinate all of those efforts and medical personnel to train medical workers.
