I have noticed an increasing amount of individuals who insist on adorning items on there body armour whilst deployed on Telic 13..(COB) These range from the complete set of cyalume sticks, ear defence, pens, maglites and watches. Oh and US rank slides are now the in thing. Do they believe that it makes them look "Ally"? or is it some sort of competition? has anyone else who is currently on Telic 13 also witnessed this strange practice?
