P. 8 Intercepts
“The last thing I wanted to do was to burden these Marines with some science project as they jumped into high-intensity combat against a determined enemy. I was wrong. The Marines jumped all over it. They understood what those systems offered to them. I got nothing but praise for those kinds of systems, because it made the grunt’s life easier.”
Lt. Gen. Richard Mills, Marine Corps deputy commandant for combat development and integration
On giving Marines in Afghanistan gear that can harness renewable energy as part of the effort to lighten the loads they must carry in the field. — Federal News Radio, Oct. 18
