You should not play with matches!
Pffft. Like you could stop me.
LOL 0699. What was the reason for changing the pattern in the first place?
From woodlands to MARPAT? The announced reason was better uniforms over all; wash & wear, better camoflauge pattern, more efficient pockets, etc. IMO a large part of the reason it was done was just because we're the Corps and we like to be different...
However I still like the Dress Blues..although that isnt always practical for every situation.
But it is eminently practical for it's primary intended use...
Picking up hot babes.
Oh so my son really wasnt on recruiting duty over break....
Ha..ha! I agree with you there.
You should not play with flamethrowers either! You might burn yourself.
that A TAC one is very nice...almost has a 'shadowy' quality to it. Looks like it work really well for urban
I think that is a smart move, if your going to be working with the ANA or other coalition forces you don't want to stick out like a sore thumb. Why not attempt to blend in. While working with the Brits in Afghaninstan I requested to wear their desert pattern uniforms while we were on patrol. My ANGLICO team looked pretty conspicuous running around with our MARPAT Cammies with all our JTAC specific equipment. It wouldn't take much thought to immediately see the difference. The request was denied of course but at least we were allowed to wear the woodland MARPAT in the green zone.
Hi Anglico, welcome to the site. Please make your way over to the "introductions" thread and make an introductory post IAW the site rules. Also, you're going to need to be vetted by one of the mods or admins here to verify your military service if you're going to have that username.
I personally think multicam is the way to go. It works really well, and half the army already has it due to deployments, so why would we spend MORE money on ANOTHER uniform/pattern? Enough is enough already. AND, I really like the way it looks with full color pins/patches for a duty uniform (read: not a field uniform). See below:
Last guy in the line looks like he's either trying to squeeze one out or hold one in...
Looks to me like he just has a big ol' chaw in his lip and is tryin' real hard not to let it spill out in front of everyone
Damn those Rangers look sharp...but whats with thefull color patches and badges?
My buddy just posted a pic on his FB from Afghan of his Maine team who are assigned to train the Afghan army with all of em sporting multicam, and these guys are from a infantry line company not Recon or Force or MARSOC or anything like that. So.....yea dunno what the Corps is planning lol! Might be a area related only sort of thing with them I dunno. Would post the pic on here but wanna try and maintain some opsec for him.
