I have come across this set of images of soldiers captioned Operation Restore Hope 1994 Near Camp Victory.

They have the 24th Infantry Division SSI. I thought operation restore hope ended in 1993?

Looks like they are wearing T.G. Faust NATO Special Forces Vests. They look very similar to nkomo's example except they don't have the rear plate pocket opening on the side, I have seen some later vests in woodland and 3 color desert without the opening on the side.
