You just have to read about a male Marine who accidentally was sent a care package meant for a female soldier. Those wacky Marines out there saving our ass. The story itself ends on a serious note and I consider it a must read for everyone.
My son said they had the most fun with Marine X’s package. He said he wasn't sure who we were sending the pack to, but the panties were size 20, and he said one of the guys got on top of the humvee and jumped off with the panties over his head and yelled, "Look at me, I'm an Airborne Ranger!!!!". He said one of the guys attached the panties to an antenna and it blew in the wind like a windsock. He said it entertained them for quite awhile.
As luck would have it he grabbed the tampons.

Everything old is new again!
Tampons and feminine pades were a "Must Have" in every GI and Field Medic's Basic Load Out during the Bad Old Days of Vietnam.
A sure, quick, clean and easy way to staunch the flow of blood from a bullet wound.
Some "Sensitized" Pentagon Three Star with a Cadeuceus on his collar needs to get his butt kicked and bruised over this one.

They need to get on the ball then and develop an actual medical bandage similar to a tampon. Maybe have it be "break away" so that you can make it smaller or larger as needed.
Or maybe I'm just out of the medical loop and they already exist.
