As every staff commissioned officer knows, PT belts are (non-scientifically) proven to reduce the likelihood that you'll get hit by a car, or that you'll be yelled at for not wearing one — and 60 percent of the time, it works every time.

See, they're practically magic. So who wouldn't want to combine the power of a PT belt with the actual scientifically proven effectiveness of wearing a face mask to stop the spread of germs, especially during a global pandemic?

Well, everyone can rest easy now: 

Although the tweet from Command Sgt. Maj. Rocky L. Carr with Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command doesn't point out a specific maker for the PT-belt face masks, a quick Google search pulls up a few other options from online markets, including one seller who promises that the mask will be “MAKE IN THE USA.”

No mask can protect you better than a PT belt mask

As of press time, it doesn't appear that any of these retailers sell the mask in size “Hooah.” Oh well.
