I was wondering if they wore any body armor when they were in Panama? Did they wear helmet scrim like the other troops? Does any one have pics?

An Infantryman from the 82nd Abn didnt start to wear body armor as a standard piece of equipment until after 9/11. It was worn infrequently in training during the 90s. They didnt wear the burlap rags on their helmets because of the possible hazard it presents when jumping from an aircraft. I dont have pics or 1st hand experience, but I have served in the 82nd Abn from 1994-1999 and 2003 to the present. I will see what kind of pics I can find though.
