I would recommend that the US military look at the history of motor racing, and safety--including helmets and head/neck safety.

Saw a fantastic documentary with Jackie Stewart, a leader for driver safety. He had some amazing stats about driver deaths, and how safety dropped deaths significantly.

Our troops survive much more, because of many factors, one being improved field medicine. They may lose limbs, but they live.

But often they have severe head injuries. So this research is very well and productively intended.

Neck is important. You get dinged in the head - even now - your head is usually fine. Your neck is not. The shock has to go somewhere.
