    Arch, i'm sure you know this but the black sets were worn by USSF advisors as well. Same with the blue/gray/black digitals. The brown digitals were probably worn as well but I do not have direct evidence to confirm. Just fyi ......

     I did know that and knowing where these sets came from, the chances of them being worn by a US advisor is actually quite high.  

     To take this a little further, the Afghan woodland and Afghan woodland digitals are also worn in the field by US Special Forces advisors working with the ANA.
