Real Player, which sucks...

I'll make a more thorough assessment of these videos once I get over the wrath of 8 shots of Wild Turkey 101...

i don't think what they're wearing are called dew rags. dew rags are worn by black people to keep their corn rows held tightly. i'm not sure, though, what people in the military call them.

What do you think Iam a recruit who just got off the bus at MCRD? We call them dew rags or bandanas and they come in your Med kit and are suppose to be used as an arm sling!

Yeah, i read the book, and it said the SEAL's wore pro-tecs too, but i guess its only an Artists interpritation.

not sure about the dew rag guys. I kinda thinking that its just the artist trying to make the guys look more badass. I mean think back to the movie "US Navy SEALS" who had the dew rag? The badass machine gunner.

On a personal note, I got my ass chewed by a 1-star for wearing one under my K-pot during an advanced land nav exercise.

My dad wore an olive drab-ish bandana or whatever you want to call it during the 80s. I lost it when I was playing paintball though, he was majorly pissed. :(

I drew the Suicidal Tendencies logo on it. They were never authorized in garrisn but when out in the field were G2G.Still have pictures with it on my head on operations.
