On standby for deployment to the shenanigans. At this juncture, its too late to secure my first choice, plates w/soft armor cummerbund. I have the option of standalone plates, soft armor or both. Sounds like we won't be getting supplemental armor. Unsure how to consider weight, bulk etc vs wide range of threats. Role will be TacMed so probably (but not guaranteed) in the second echelon running around providing aid. I'd appreciate any input, whether here or in PMs.
