The Army is under a growing public outcry over its helmet policy.
Now, the Army is trying to convince the public it is following the proper protocols.
Here are five things you need to know.
The Army’s helmet policy is not being followed properly.
It’s been under scrutiny since it was first implemented in 2014.
The uniform code of conduct requires that soldiers wear helmets at all times.
It doesn’t specify a minimum number of helmets to be worn, but it does say that “there must be at least one helmet worn by each soldier at all time.”
The Army has also been criticized for failing to follow through on the helmet policy’s promises to protect against concussion and the effects of concussions.
In response, the service recently issued a directive to all officers and soldiers that states that all soldiers must wear a helmet every time they enter a military building or work.
“There are numerous concerns regarding the Army’s policy and procedures regarding the safe and effective use of helmets, including issues relating to head and neck protection, concussion, the potential for brain injury, and the use of new technologies,” according to the directive.
The directive also outlines how helmets must be worn when wearing a combat gear outfit.
But it does not include a timeline for when helmets will be worn in the future.
That lack of transparency is frustrating to military families and advocates for veterans.
“This is the Army at the height of its self-inflicted wounds,” said Chris Cox, a retired Army captain who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
“It is in desperate need of a fresh start.”
The military wants to keep helmets out of the hands of children.
The Uniformed Services Employees Memorial Fund, a watchdog group, said it’s concerned that the Army helmet policy will encourage children to use helmets at the same time that they’re wearing them.
In an email to The Intercept, the fund said that it “will continue to hold the military accountable for their safety and well-being, and will be seeking additional information from the military on its helmet policies.”
The fund also noted that the Department of Defense has recently asked Congress to establish a National Safety Council to study helmet use.
“As a civilian government, the U.S. is obligated to ensure the safety of all of its citizens and the health and well being of all citizens,” the fund wrote.
The fund urged Congress to pass legislation that would require the military to follow helmet use standards for children, including those who are at least 8 years old.
The funding request from the fund also notes that the Pentagon has not updated its helmet requirements for younger soldiers.
“The Department of the Army must continue to educate and train its personnel in the proper use of the helmet for all Soldiers and civilian employees, and ensure the protection of all Soldiers from the risk of injury and concussion, as well as the risk for concussion and brain injury,” the request said.
The National Guard is still wearing helmets.
The U.K. Army is one of several military units that has worn helmets at least since 2013.
While the Army and other forces have instituted policies that require soldiers to wear helmets, the Guard still has been using them for years.
The Guard is a “low risk” service, the Pentagon’s National Guard Bureau said in a statement, meaning that it does “not face the risk posed by the active threat of terrorist or criminal acts.”
The Guard has also said that “every soldier who wears a helmet has the right to wear it on duty” without any additional permission from the commander, the military’s highest ranking civilian.
In recent years, the National Guard has had more complaints about helmets from troops than other military branches.
The Office of Inspector General, a federal watchdog agency, has also found that the Guard has not followed proper helmet protocols for soldiers who wear them.
According to the OIG report, the OAG also found “no evidence of helmets being provided to soldiers in a timely fashion.”
The OIG also found some of the Guard’s helmets were damaged or “damaged beyond repair.”
But the report did not recommend any action by the military.
“Although the OGA has raised concerns regarding certain helmets being worn by some of our personnel, we have not identified specific cases where there has been a need for additional helmet wear,” the report said.
“We are aware of the numerous complaints and concerns raised by our members.”
The IG said that the military is currently investigating reports that “some of our members may have had helmets that were damaged beyond repair or that were improperly returned to the field.”
The policy was meant to protect soldiers in Iraq.
In June, the Defense Department released a draft directive to civilian military leaders that said “each Soldier has the responsibility to wear at all hours the Uniformed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and the helmet.
It is the responsibility of the Soldier to ensure that he/she wears the helmet in accordance with the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the Uniform Field Manual.”
The draft directive also noted, “there is no helmet requirement for all members of the
