Getting Rid of Vests
We were just thinking about this as we got a new vest last year. We had been thinking of taking the old bullet-resistant vest out to a range and seeing what damage it could stand up to. But this makes better sense:
- I retired in November and have two old ballistic vests. I contacted the Marine Reserve Center at 3034 W. Foster and verified that they are actively collecting used vests. They use these vests to line their vehicles to absorb some of the impact from IEDs. The contact people are: Master Sgt Hernandez and Staff Sgt Pena 773-539-6464 ext330.
Lets clean out our closets and put all those old vests to good use. Hundreds of retirees can help out a lot of Marines.There are plenty of former Marines in each police district. How about if you guys collect in your District and make one big delivery to the Reserve Center.
