Off base in a war zone - are you armed?

So our location is near an Army base during Desert Storm. Our soldier has been injured - minor injury, he's ambulatory - and so gets a few days down time. The base is very near a 'friendly' town, where the soldiers go to buy food/trinkets/just be off base for a while.

Would they go fully armed, as if going out on a mission? Or would they only carry, say, a sidearm, or nothing? Would they wear body armor?

Tried googling this, but got nothing remotely useful. (Armed on leave, etc., mostly it talked about coming back to the US or being stationed in the US.) Also checked the USA: military (misc) tag here.
