Mortuary Affairs Exercise
U.S. Army Sgt. Raymond G. Green of Augusta, Ga., communications NCO with the 642nd Regional Support Group, was among the troops testing their chemical protective masks the hard way at Fort Pickett, Va., as part of the Mortuary Affairs Exercise Aug. 17, 2018. The room, which was filled with tear gas, demonstrates the effectiveness of protective equipment to Soldiers and then shows them what exposure feels like when they take off the masks. Units participating included the 673rd, 246th, 387th and 1019th Quartermaster Companies. The 642nd Regional Support Group oversaw the exercise. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. 1st Class Gary A.
