    Handwarmers seem very popular, in hunting camouflage, solid colors, and military camouflages such as multicam and AOR

    Some soldiers of 1st Bn 4th IR wear All Terrain Tiger by Tiger Stripe Products instead of their usual Black 357 OPFOR uniforms. I'm not sure why but I have seen it suggested only one squad or platoon in headquarters company wears it.

    The various OPFOR uniforms at the different CTCs are based on what mission set or capability that specific OPFOR organization is representing.

    The different roles require different uniform items (and/or grooming) - and these assignments usually are static within the OPFOR units (not something picked on a whim by a company/troop  commander). Some OPFOR elements are designated as uniformed, conventional forces (here is usually where you see the black/tan/od green/dcu uniforms). Other OPFOR elements are designated as 'special purpose forces' (irregular, guerilla types) - this is typically where you see guys with non-standard equipment, uncommon uniform patterns, relaxed grooming, etc.

    As far as only 1 platoon/section in an HSC/HHC wearing something non-standardized, this tends to be the element that otherwise would be the Battalion Scout platoon/section. At the end of the day, its still the big Army and a similar organizational manning structure is loosely maintained across the OPFOR forces. There's still weapon squads, mortar sections, heavy weapons sections, etc found amongst their ranks, along with the same expectations for skill development throughout their career progression that is commensurate with their peers in maneuver units.

    I don't know what camo it is, it has logos written on it, but I can't make it out. My guess is it was a gift from someone.

    Not that it matters much, but that date stamp is incorrect: Ahmad Shah Massoud was killed 9 months earlier.

    I use to hit the surplus stores outside of Fort Polk and there was so much random stuff that would show up from OPFOR. Airsoft gear, 5.11 clothing, blackhawk clothing, most of it was solid colors, but now and than you'd find hunting camo items.

    Joseph Teti, photo shared by him. He was a bit coy about the details but from what I gathered probably CIA Ground Branch in Afghanistan
