QUANTICO, Va. --
How do Marines feel about the gloves they wear into combat? Marines Corps Systems Command (MCSC) wants to know. That's why MCSC's Program Manager (PM) for Infantry Combat Equipment (ICE) is sponsoring an Internet survey on Flame Resistant Organizational Gear (FROG) gloves.
All active duty and reserve Marines who were or are deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, and who currently have a Command Access Card (CAC), are invited to participate. The survey is located at https://usmcsurveys.natick.army.mil
and will be open for 60 days or until MCSC receives 10,000 responses. There is a demographics section that needs to be completed prior to beginning the actual survey.
The results of the survey will help members of PM ICE improve FROG gloves that were fielded beginning in 2006. The team hopes to field new improved gloves by the end of fiscal year 2012.
