BTW, I think that’s a “V for Victory,” not a “Peace, bro’.” Just a hunch. Not sure where or who, but he appears to be a Marine because he’s wearing forest BDUs with a desert helmet, which is what I’ve seen most of the Marines wearing.
Why is that? A lot of the Army’s body armor is also green forest pattern, worn over desert outfits. My wife and kids watched a show a couple weeks ago about them making the new armor, and how they were shipping them out every day to Kuwait for immediate use. They were forest. Why? Did they run out of desert pattern material?
