Is that you flying the Space Shuttle? http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/think.gif

I just found the picture I was looking for. This one should answer your EGA/USMC stencil question, Jeremiah.

Here's another pic of me in chocolate chips, soft cover, and minimal web gear taken on the grounds of the K-MOD. They were taken at the same time as the group shot I posted earlier.

I jokingly dubbed these my "hero" pics.

Oh ya, so that we keep with the topic of this thread, a good example of the Desert ABDU, or comonly called the Yabba Dabba Du's. Also the winter coat for it.

One more for tonight. this one was taken at King Fhahd airfirld before the shooting war began. I don't remember the exact date but I believe it was around Oct or Nov of 1990. I'm wearing a newly issued pair of chocolate chip DCUs with aircrew style leather name tag and am talking with "Major Dad."

Too bad it's a bit out of focus. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/crying.gif

Hmmm...I'll wager the picture was taken DEC/JAN time frame and you are recreating Ali Bahbah at the Temple of Doom (the scene right before he rescues the golden Camel from the evil hands of the Infidel) summoning the Gates of Babylon to be opened.
Well its not Warhorse, ORKK, ORBD, BIAP, Normandy, Caldwell, ORBM, ORTF, Taramiyah, Brassfield, Washington, Liberty, or ORSH. Could it be Grizzly? I dunno, you got me stumped as to where and what yer doin.

Where do I get this burn pit memo? I live about 400 yards from the burn pit here at Speicher. Believe me, we all know when the winds are out of the south.

I'm playing uncle Saddam, shooting my pistol into the air, from the review stands at the crossed sabers. Believe it or not, that stupid moron never shot the roof, or they patched it real well!
As for the burn pit memo, PM me with your email address and I will email it to you tomorrow when I go into work. Got a day out, goggle back flight tomorow, then my Instrument eval Friday, remember what that is?

I started another thread called OIF Flight Gear, that way, we are not hijacking this thread to help keep it pure. There, we rotor goobers can throw our uniqueness in without polluting the pool.

Hahaha...yeah I remember what an instrument eval is, my APART window closed in JAN. An ITO, one GPS and one PAR no-gryo, entry into holding, unusual attitude recovery, land, shut down. Ride complete in 1.0; nothing like a "combat" instrument eval! Didn't even do any table talk.

PM sent.

To help get this thread back on track, sort of, here's some photos of some gear I have laying around in my room. Please excuse the cleanliness of it, most of that stuff has only been worn once or twice. I fly, we've got a totally different set of gear from this ground stuff. As you can see I keep it stored "at the ready" on top of my wall locker.

Thanks for showing that Interceptor Body Armor, I was looking for pictures of it! Can someone shear some personal pictures of DCU's + woodland IBA vests in wear?

Thanks, Sebas

Honestly, my ability to identify the various makes of the Ak-47 in no longer very good. It has a single wire folding stock. Interestingly, though, almost all of the ones I saw on the battlefield had the pinned so they would not fold.

These aren't mine but I did bring them back from Kuwait.

I hope the fact that they were a "bring back" by a member of the US military is enough of a linkage to post them here.
Moderators: If my assumption is incorrect, please feel free to delete this and the follow-on related post.

This is a uniform that I procured from an Iraqi Republican Guard 1LT during the operation to liberate Kuwait. The epaulet rank insignia are newer than the uniform; perhaps he was recently promoted from 2LT??

The size of the composite pic of the front and back of the jacket forces me to post the trousers in another follow-on post

Hello,

Here is the uniform that I used in Afghanistan in 2005. I was working as a Contractor with the Civil Affairs units and wore this whenever we went out in the boonies. I was a civilian and the DODC stood for "Department of Defense Civilian". This was my own doing as contractors were not supposed to wear uniforms. I opted to do it anyway as I would rather have the bad guys shooting at me thinking I was a soldier rather than the good guys shooting at me thinking I was a bad guy. The arm pockets were added by the tailor shop at Bagram. The hat was picked up at the outdoor clothing shop at Bagram as well.

Regards,
Jason
