My six year old boy (Jason) has been very concerned about the safety of
the soldiers and wants to know how the soldiers stay safe. More
specifically he wants to know how you keep from getting shot.

Mr. Matt- Well, very good question Jason! We have to wear bulletproof vests when we go off base. Also our vehicles have been "up armored" which means that they put a lot more steel or other hard metal material on the outsides of the vehicle to keep the bullets from coming through the vehicle. If we were to get shot at. But most of all it's the training that we get on how to react when something like that may happen. We do stay safe. As safe as we can.
