 n.— «Griffin was a big guy, even without the bulky body armor, helmet, and “dangle”—what soldiers call the bits of gear that they clip, strap, or otherwise buckle to their uniforms. He had half a dozen rifle magazines strapped across his chest, two radios, a medical pack, a flashlight, a digital camera, and a variety of other pouches and pockets swollen with kit.» —“E-Mails Reveal a Fallen Soldier’s Story” by Alex Kingsbury US News & World Report May 13, 20007.
