    A helmet doesn’t protect well from commonly used combat rifle rounds.

    Helmets are heavy.

    They cannot be easily packed away when not needed.

    They don’t protect from any shot in the face or the back of the neck.

    About the only thing they are good for is protection from shrapnel, falling debris and some hits on the head from above by a blunt object. If the soldier is targeted by a sniper wielding a .50 BMG or .338 Lapua Magnum rifle no helmet will make a difference.

    I once interviewed a French Foreign Legion war dog who was fighting in Bosnia. He told me he never wears a helmet or flak jacket (bulletproof vest) because it slows him down and hinders his movement. He said that the best protection from being shot is to be constantly on the move.

    Also, the idea of “ONE SINGLE GLOBAL STRUCTURE OF MMM” just like MMM Global has motivated and inspired lots of former MMM global leaders and now they are participating with all their MMM global team. Such response is a confirmation of the appealing nature of the initiative to the public and a show of support and solidarity for the MMM United Community.
