CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear) Marines are a unique bunch. Like a lot of MOS fields, they pride themselves on their unique duties within the context of the Corps at large.

The gas chamber is annual training done to insure that Marines understand how to use their issued gas masks in a real, practical environment filled with CS gas (tear gas).
Well, that’s what they tell you anyway. Really, it’s just a small brick room where the CBRN Marines get to haze you once a year to feed their sadistic urges.
