How do American soldiers stationed in the middle east keep cool when they're wearing so much clothing and gear?
From what I know, the temperatures in some parts of the Middle East during the summer are higher than most of Americans have seen, for example, on Monday, Baghdad is supposed to have a high of 122 degrees Fahrenheit. I’m curious to know how our troops keep from having heat stroke or any other related problems due to the heat while they’re working during the summer months?
