    I talk to this one active duty Special Forces Sgt Major sporadically....he brought an a native head gear ( I forgot the name scratch ). He worn it while running with the Northern Alliance early on in the opening stages of OEF.

    He let me take pictures of it. Scarf was made of silk. The scarf is wrapped and hangs to the left side when worn.

    I figure at the least a photo may preserve an item in a photo archive rather than to have been seen by only a few. I know 1000's of items are "stuffed-away" in a closet or attic never to be seen again.

    Just my thoughts~

    Photo taken in Afghanistan and they are both armed to the teath Smile

    Very nice MZ! Any way you can convince the SGM into sending you a photo with him wearing it? That would be great to have to display with it. Good find! Mark
