Helmet face shield does its bit to reduce troop brain injuries

While our brave young men and women protect the interests of the US at home and abroad, they are often exposed to dangers from outside. Well, you can never quite tell which civilian has a home made bomb tied around his or her body, and neither can you foretell whether there is a sniper from afar ready to pull the trigger. What we can do is, make sure our army is well equipped to handle any potentially dangerous situations, and a helmet face shield might just go a long way in reducing the number of troop brain injuries, compared to the current combat helmet being worn by US soldiers and Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of course, this face shield must be capable of deflecting the rippling force of an explosion away from the soft tissues of the face, and we keep our fingers crossed that such face shields will be released sooner rather than later.
