Recruits from Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, remove their M50 Joint Service General Purpose Mask to expose themselves to CS gas, a non-lethal, riot control agent, at the Confidence Chamber aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., Oct. 29, 2012. The purpose of this exercise is to let recruits experience the effects of the gas and allows them to gain confidence in their ability to properly clear the mask.
