Best wishes to all my brothers and sisters in arms on Veterans Day. No matter the color of your uniform, we all bleed red.

What's a CVC helmet?

Also, Taylor was an idiot.

It’s like a bump cap or a hard hat, with a microphone and headset for the intercom and radio. CVC just stands for combat vehicle crewman (the flash resistant -yeah right- coveralls and accessories are collectively referred to as “CVC’s”. The thing about a cvc helmet is that although it’s personal enough that people will put their name on it, it’s still part of the tanks inventory. You don’t take it with you.

As far as the smoking, it seems like a terrible idea to spark up when you’re sitting on forty plus rounds of extremely explosive propellant, especially given that the “casings” in a main gun round are basically painted cardboard - but they are on the other side of a blast door... and you could be on the steel for days... tough on a smoker! Lots of guys will bend the rules...

sure - the gunners got to have some fun too. Nobody’s letting him smoke around all those optics and electronics!
