67. Get that guy some combat boots!
Nobody makes 'combat flip-flops.' I've hiked some terrain where you'd think tennis shoes would be fine--but they're really not fine at all.

In VN, we took the military's jungle boots for granted--but they really were well-designed to stand up to actual combat conditions. I can't imagine trying to operate there in flip-flops. Besides the obvious limitations on ease and speed of movement, medics would be constantly tied up dealing with foot injuries.

But hey, if you can go to war in your wheelchair, anything is possible. :eyes:
