Later in the program, Bennett provides insights into the Army’s way of doing business. (Embedding track suits with reflective tape.) Every branch has to wear the glow belt and they go by many derogatory and foul names.
Glow Belts Save Lives!
The general consensus across the military is glow belts are stupid looking and a little cheesy but under certain low light and darkness conditions, the glow belt has a purpose. Here’s the thing though. The glow belt doesn’t have a purpose in a war zone. Big FOBs? That makes sense given a high security posture and grunt to POG ratio (What it matters?!?). Glow belts on an OP? Nope — it doesn’t have a place in a tactical environment. [You laugh because you’ve seen it and you know it’s true.]
