    Before the 10,500 members of the New York Army National Guard drawn any gear it belongs to Sgt. 1st Class David Nichols. Nichols, a 34-year Army veteran from Rensselaer and experienced supply sergeant, is the manager of the New York Central Issue Facility (CIF). On August 4, he and the nine other Soldiers and civilians who run the place were tracking $7,885,782.69 worth of gear stacked 30 feet high in the warehouse at Watervliet Arsenal just north of Albany. That works out to about 300,000 items of personal equipment that included 500 helmets, 852 green plastic canteens, 6,000 kneepads, 4,000 elbow pads, and 1,000 complete sets of Army Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) load carrying equipment for a rifleman. CIF stocks 70 different types of gear ranging from goggles to Gore-Tex pants. The goal of the CIF team, Nichols said, is to guarantee that every one of the 10,562 members of the New York Army National Guard has the most modern personnel equipment possible, especially when they are training to go to war.
