What is the purpose of this item on the 24-hour bag packing list?

1. Hand cleanliness prior to meals.
2. Personal hygiene.

That task was written in 2001. It’s 2018 and there are travel size packs of baby wipes now. Pack one (or two) of those - they’re about $1 each in the travel size section of your favorite superstore pharmacy.

I can't fix all of CAP's problems, but I can lead from the bottom by building my squadron as a center of excellence to serve as an example of what every unit can be.

To wash your hands, face, or whatever else needs cleaning in the field.

I carry unscented baby wipes for the occasional "Mississippi Shower".

Added: a little hand sanitizer dealie hanging on your gear isn't a bad idea either. 

During one of my well-being check missions it was pointed out that people in a DA without running water may not be keeping up with their own hygiene.

That was all it took to insure we all smelled like Isopropyl alcohol the rest of the time and lather up after each contact.
