That's how I've always viewed it...it is "someone else's" label that "someone else" has assigned to me/people like me. I don't have said tattoo, but to a certain extent, I have embraced "their" label. It isn't offensive to me, but rather, it is accurate, so... game on, I guess.
I've got the jacket AND pants, but again, in XL. Never worn in any CF context (Ex-purple trade reservist) and they've been in my SHTF bag untouched for quite awhile. One component or both are yours for some bargain price TBD if you want. NOT looking to stomp on Harris' toes.
Saran Wrap is an excellent field expedient dressing for relatively short term/pre-hospital - doesn't stick, keeps it clean, and you can evaluate the wound without removing it. Learned that from CF med techs upon joining the army - by which point I'd already been in the burn realm for >10 years...
Looked after a patient today shot by a handgun in an almost certainly gang-related incident - his second time being shot. Pretty much prep to guarantee that gun bans wouldn’t have prevented either incident. SMH.
