There's nothing like the smell of a long workout poorly masked by the powdery fresh scent of a baby wipe. It's like perfume on a pig. But now, thanks to the innovative efforts of Bravo Sierra and their new approach to hygiene, whether you're in the field or at the gym, you can wash away the smell without needing water.
Thousands of service members understand that when you're downrange, the only option for a shower might be baby wipes. While these do offer some relief, let's be honest: they were never meant to clean the entire body of an adult. Bravo Sierra understood that challenge and developed their own body wipes that are extra-thick, biodegradable and kill 99.9% of bacteria in 60 seconds. Best of all with their refreshing woody scent, they smell like an adult male should, not a baby's ass.
Bravo Sierra recently partnered with Task & Purpose to put on Bootcamp Burnout on December 13th at Chelsea Piers in Manhattan. Participants went through a rigorous fitness circuit to ensure they were nice and sweaty and afterwards, were given Body Wipes. The result? Let's just say they showered Bravo Sierra with praise.

December 16 marks the anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. This is the story of Medal of Honor recipient Pfc. Francis S. Currey, whose actions helped save the flank of his entire battalion from advancing German soldiers at Malmedy.
A new documentary tells the heroic story of the first Marine to earn the Medal of Honor since Vietnam
More than 15 years ago, Marine Cpl. Jason Dunham gave his life to save his fellow Marines on the streets of Husaybah, Iraq when he leaped upon a grenade. In 2007, he became the first Marine since the Vietnam War to be awarded the Medal of Honor.
In the years since his death, his story of courage and sacrifice has been told and re-told. His Medal of Honor citation is read to Marine recruits during the Crucible at boot camp. And his name adorns the USS Jason Dunham, where his dress blue uniform rests in a clear display case on the quarterdeck, a solemn shrine to a young man who gave his life for his brothers in arms.
Now, Marines who served with Dunham are sharing his story in their own words, and a small group of military veterans and film makers are helping them do it as part of The Gift, a crowd-funded documentary film chronicling his life, and legacy.
