I wonder if they'll have to shave their facial hair without protest for combat, a gas mask won't seal with facial hair. Historically you have to fit in the mold of the armed services but I guess times a changing.

If the masks won't seal, it's a self-fixing problem.

Just like the H2S devices in the oil patch today. They are designed as demand systems i.e. only flow when taking a breath, they also have a positive pressure valve that causes any leaks around beards or odd facial shapes to only flow out, not in.

This reduces the effective use time as it waste clean air but does save lives.
