First of all, thank you for letting me field your product on this deployment. In a country that doesn't drink water, but only tea, hydration is a large problem. Before receiving elete Electrolyte Add-In, I would see at least four to five heat-related patients a day. For each person, I would use the standard 2,000 ml LR and packs of ORS [Oral Re-hydration Solution] salts, but would see the same guys back. After I started using elete Electrolytes, my numbers have dropped significantly. I've saved on I.V. fluids. The soldiers are more active quicker and longer [hydrating with elete™] than with traditional means.
I attribute this not only to the solution itself [elete] but to its drink-ability. People will not use something if they don't like the taste. I started using [elete] this product during the extreme time during the acclimatization period. Coming from Washington State to Afghanistan in July was tough on my soldiers. Since using the elete Electrolytes, I haven't had one heat-related patient, and my infantry soldiers still come back for more. They use it on long missions, in the gym, and even during long maintenance days in the motor pool. Since I've had each soldier in my company carry one bottle in their pocket at all times, I have not had one person go down. Thank you elete Electrolytes for helping me preserve the fighting strength of my unit. THANK YOU
I wish to thank you for elete. We are a military police company (Airborne) deployed to Iraq. Most of our days are spent patrolling roads, looking for IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) and mortar nests located along primary and secondary roads. Half of the Humvees don’t have air-conditioning, and when we pull LPOPS (Listening and Observation Posts), we have to turn off the vehicle so we can listen for incoming rounds. At night with our doors combat locked, the only person who gets any breeze is the gunner located on top of the vehicle. Often, it will reach 120+ degrees. Needless to say, we end up drinking a lot of water at least 2 litres an hour. elete helps replenish our much needed demand [for electrolytes]. I’ve given elete to my unit, and I’ve had many of the men in my platoon and company ask me when I’ll get more. Our medic gives the single-serving vials to people he treats for dehydration. He really appreciates those vials. I would just like to express my and a couple of hundred other guys’ thanks because it’s only going to get hotter here.
