DoD Orders $250 Million of Gas Masks – What Do They Know?

According to a new report, the Department of Defense spent $150 million on Avon Protective Systems' M53A1 gas masks.

The U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) has awarded Avon Protection Systems Inc., Cadillac, Michigan, a $245,961,250 firm-fixed-price contract for production of M53A1 Chemical Biological Protective Mask systems, according to the DoD contract website.

The Army estimates M53A1 gas masks will start delivery in the second half of this financial year ending September. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, will oversee the purchase order.

Avon Protection Systems is a world leader and major supplier to the military, law enforcement, first responders, and industrial sectors globally.

The M53A1 was developed to counter multiple threats encountered on the modern battlefield. “It provides excellent protection against traditional chemical and biological warfare agents, select Toxic Industrial Materials (TIMs) and particulate matter including radioactive dust,” read the M53 brochure.

According to the company, the M53A1 protects soldiers from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attacks. Specifically, the mask protects against mustard, sarin, soman, and VX nerve agents.

The order comes one month after the U.S. government introduced science-based guidelines for how first responders decontaminate large numbers of Americans after a chemical-weapons attack.

The guidelines, published last month, are the first in the U.S. to be based on extensive research and testing.

“Terrorist threats and the use of chemical weapons in Syria have heightened awareness of the need for improved preparedness against chemical attacks,” said Gary Disbrows, deputy director of the US Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, which prepared the guidelines.

“First responders are supportive of the fact that it is evidence-based guidance, and not just, ‘We used this last time, and it seemed to work,’” he added.

With lightning speed, the Army and U.S. government have been actively preparing for a biological incident on the homeland. With threats harder to anticipate today, the act of preparation suggests some fears that an attack of some sort could be imminent.

  1. We as a society have taken the Holy Bible out of schools and let dust collect on the Bible in our houses giving ourselves over to sin. We let the state teach our children the rights and wrongs of life by man’s point of view. The churches have watered down the Gospel of Christ and the pastors are afraid to preach and teach the unvarnished truth. So what we have here is a nation who let sin in the backdoor and over time now the front door. It’s time to turn to Jesus Christ who is Lord and God. This is not a story but reality and we see the things talked about coming to pass right now. God gave us heads up so we shall know!
    The only way for this to turn around maybe…is for us to go back to being a God fearing nation , REPENTING OF SIN and FALLING AT THE FEET OF CHRIST ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS. We must do this no matter of difference of opinions. There is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus who is the Son of God. He was wounded for our transgressions , bruised for our iniquities and took the sins of the world apon Himself so we could have a change at eternal life in Him.
    We are in Psalm 91 times folks. The time is now to get right with Jesus. No church can do this for you. All you need is to turn your phone off, dust off your Holy Bible and read the Word and pray. Ask Jesus to help you and save you from your sins. We’ve all fallen short of the glory of God but there is hope in the next life if you’d believe.
    What good is it if you gain the whole world but lose your soul? There are evil forces at work trying to steal, kill and destroy everything in which is good. You love your children yes, so love your creator God the Father and the Son of God , Jesus Christ, who is the ONLY way unto Salvation.
    Matthew 24:4 Take heed that no man deceive you…..
    Don’t trust me but do your own research to see what I’m telling you is indeed the Truth!
    We see how bad the world is getting and the beast system in action. We see the pandemics springing up like the Coronavirus which is patented by the US government by the way. We see the evil men in power under the devil himself funding both sides of wars. We see men such as Bill Gates who funded a Coronavirus vaccine 3 days from the first US case under a pharma company. What’s worse the virus or the vaccine? What about 5G radiation 24/7 to decrease the surface population? GMO? Tainted water?
    We can help each other or hurt. The choice is yours. I am here to help in anyway I can.
    Did you know there are no medical masks in walmarts, CVS and others? Sold out is the words heard. But the DoD is cocked locked and ready to rock when it comes to bio PPE. This is all planned by design. Agenda 21 under the United Nations. The pope calls on a world leader to bring is through this climate change. The rise of antiChrist is close , friends.. and brothers in the real Lord Jesus Christ.
    I hope this makes some of you think and act with morals and wisdom and most of all asking Jesus into your life.
