    Book coming out  Jan 2017 from Schiffer Publishing.

    https://www.amazon.com/Contractor-Gear-Private-Purchase-Service-Issue-Contractors/dp/076435258X/ref=sr_1_46?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1472860762&sr=1-46&keywords=iraq

    Description from Amazon:

    This book is a comprehensive collectors’ guide to Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) civilian contractors’ private-purchase and service-issue clothing, equipment, and weapons as they were worn and used in the field between 2002 and 2014. A host of detailed photographs show what civilian contractors both in combat and in non-combat roles looked like in Afghanistan and Iraq. This is the first militaria book that presents actual configurations of clothing, equipment, as well as weapons of civilian contractors in as near to realistic configurations as is practically possible. The majority of items presented in this book are bringbacks from Iraq and Afghanistan, where the author worked in different capacities as a civilian contractor. Items shown in the book used to be the author’s own work clothes, equipment and tools, or they belonged to fellow contractors who worked with him in different places at different times.


    About the Author
    Zammis Schein worked in Afghanistan as an escort interpreter, an English teacher and a field interpreter trainer on several assignments. He fell in love with the country. He was enchanted by the people, the languages, the rich culture, and the colorful history of Afghanistan. He started his collection of contractor clothing and equipment while he was working in Afghanistan.

    Something to look forward to.

    I placed an order for a copy a couple of weeks ago. Hopefully it won't take too long to be released.
