    BESMAYA, Iraq --Lt. Gen. Frank G. Helmick, deputy commanding general for operations, United States Forces – Iraq, Command Sgt. Maj. Earl L. Rice, senior enlisted advisor to the DCG-O, USF-I, and Iraqi army Brig. Gen. Abbas Fadhil Abdul Sahib, commander of the IA’s Besmaya Combat Training Center, congratulate two honor graduates of an observer / controller class held at the CTC. The USF-I is working with the Iraqi government to train and develop all aspects of the Iraqi security forces including the army, air force, navy, and federal, oil, and border police and helping them to become a modern and effective security force.

    Notice the odd helmet cover with the pocket and the strange assortment of patches, the 101st looks like a error, where all the black is not filled in.

    He's very likely victim of a prank by one of his buddies. We screwed with each other all the time.

    I once ate lunch at one of the larger dining facilities on Camp Victory, and afterwords discovered that my guys affixed an "ASS CLOWN" tab to my uniform!

    The guy in DCU is Iraqi. Not uncommon at all for them to wear an amalgamation of tabs, patches etc on their uniforms from units they've worked with.
