Can someone tell me

What size magazine is the modern US soldier issued and how many loaded mags does the average infantryman carry on his (or her) person? 5.56 NATO.
Thanks

I just got in and sister had a good day and the words from you and anybody else that even mentioned them to the man upstairs, thankyou, and I hope I can repay you someday. Now your question, sense I really do not know, and Jake the kid down the street just got back from Afghanistan, I gave his Mom a shout and he was out having fun. God love that boy, what am I saying Man! anyway I think he said once, if I heard him right standard was one in gun nat. and five on board, meaning man, but I thought he said they also have belts too, and ankle straps. But you got me real curious now. I know you want to have as much as possible depending upon who you are fighting, but rule of thumb & Lbc I think will agree in our day the one who made the most noise and threw the most lead won period. I do not know if it is still that way now. But will ask Jake when I see him for you. thanks for the mention to the big guy for me,and sis, I won't forget. John

If I read you right. you're estimating 150 on person?
How far away was a "can" of ammo? Again, an estimate will be a fine answer.

How many soldiers does a Humvee support?
I am nearly through with the POP quiz.
Thanks.

Don't worry about that, I did that to Jake all niht, and still cannot remember right, I think he said a normal mission was 7 fighting men and three inside men, and 1 on 50 & 1 or same as driver on the vee with a 30mm cannon, and twin 30's or 50's up front controlled by joystick, with screen. But screen got knocked out a lot and they found they liked the old 50 with terrut better. So thats what 12 or 13 I guess, pretty close anyway, but I know he said 7 or 8 could get out and fight anywhere. JC
