As I was leaving today I was juggling a bunch of shit trying to get in my MRAP and I spilled one of the Gatorade chocolate shakes into my helmet. It coagulated really quick, so I poured water on the pads and rinsed my kevlar out. So come on guys, what have you spilled inside your helmet?

My TC spilled monster into his ACH once, and one time I was sitting in the VIP seat of an ASV and the gunner had a shock latte up in his turret and it got crushed by the turret while it was traversing and it exploded all over me including my helmet, just not inside it.

While I never spilled something inside of mine, we used to pick up guys helmets that were left unsecured and fill them with all kinds of junk. Pudding, dirt, potato salad, anything that was readily available. This wasn't in theater, but at one of those bases where you're always wearing flak jackets and helmets. Never try to dry Isotoner gloves in a microwave either.

Nothing but I've seen what happens to kevlars when some dumbass Bradley Commander leaves it on the floor when engaging the turret. There's a loud boom, a grinding noise and a shitload of particles in teh air.

I tipped a 1 gallon jug of CLP into my ACH while cleaning my M2 in the turret. My head smelled like CLP for the rest of the deployment. OIF 1 with no replacement pads to be found anywhere.

I new a guy in an S-3B Viking that had to shit in his HGU-56 before he made it back to the carrier! LOL

My dad's pilot took a shit in a helmet bag over the ocean in their F-4.

EDIT: hopefully this doesn't turn into a "what have you shit in" thread.

Ya I'm pretty sure the deck crew guys were kinda weirded out by a guy catching the 3 wire without his helmet. and then opening the cockpit to smell that aroma.

One of the pilots had a Rip it explode in his flight helmet right before we were supposed to take last week. He washed it out as best he could with bottled water and wore it all night.
