It pains me to write this, but I lost some kit that was very near and dear to me on my recent deployment to Afghanistan. I am a Loadmaster in the USAF, read this list and weep. The List: 1 Surefire Minimus headlamp. I lost this beauty within the first ten minutes of being on the ground at Bagram. I had gotten into the habit of keeping all of my most used gear in a little Stanley FatMax toolbag. This enabled me to have quick access to the tool I use most often while flying. I had the Minumus tucked away in one of the external pouches and it must have fallen out when we were transloading our gear into trucks to take to the Ops center. It was pitch black out on the Airfield so there was no way I could find it later. I have replaced this since returning to home station. My new one came with a red filter so that is a bonus! 1 EDC Custom Clicky flashlight from HDS Systems. This one made my heart stop when I realized it was gone forever. Needless to say, these flashlights are not cheap so this was a blow to my mind and wallet when I lost it. I'm not entirely sure where I lost it but I think it fell out of my flight suit pocket when I went running after a guy that left his ID card on my plane. We had just dropped off a bunch of guys at this one airfield when I noticed his ID laying on the floor. I picked it up and hustled after him, that must have resulted in the light shuffling loose from the pocket I had it clipped on. I am not going to be buying another one of these for a while. At least until I know I am able to keep track of it properly. 1 Pair of Oakley sunglasses. Lost these when I wasn't even flying. I think I left them at the Moral building while I was making a pot of coffee. I have a bad history with Oakley's since I always seem to loose them within the first week of having them. Funny story, a guy left his sunglasses on the plane. I ended up keeping them, then I lost them the very next day. That's a total of two pairs of sunglasses lost in two months. My WA State Driver's licence, my Credit Card, My ID card. These all flew out of my pocket on the night of my first flight in country. I had put them in the zippered pocket on my arm and I must have forgotten to zip it. Luckily one of the aircraft maintainers found my ID card the next day but the credit card and driver's license are chilling in the sun somewhere at Bagram today. I also lost a PDA, numerous pens and pencils, and a few rolls of duct tape. So that's it. I really need to come up with a system for keeping track of my gear. Any suggestions?
