I was doing some research and:

The premium condom-safe personal lubricant that keeps a man’s most important weapon well oiled. If the military issued a lube, this is what they’d distribute with the condoms and artillery. Developed by marines for marines.

During Operation Desert Storm, marines jacked off with actual military-issue gun oil while hunkered down in the trenches of Kuwaiti battlefields. A group of those marines developed a high-tech, condom-safe formula for smooth, rapid-fire action.

This silicone-based lube keeps a Private’s parts well-lubricated with added Vitamin E and Aloe Vera for longer lasting, slicker ride and minimized skin irritation.
