My, how things have changed...


Saw this at the park yesterday:

Wow, that's awesome! Strange that the modern soldier is wearing outdated camo, but even still, seeing the packs and uniforms side by side... I'm amazed at how similar they actually look, sure the packs are different, but they serve the same purpose! Is this a Staff Ride?

That's not a soldier, that's a sailor! Notice the "stop sign" cover. Likely he is a member of the naval special warfare community, they still wear the old BDU. I think it is a Staff Ride. Back in my Combat Historian days Antietam was my favorite by far!
