    I remember seeing this photo years ago.

    Third world armies are pretty hardcore. I was in the Philippines a few years ago and on TV they showed these soldiers being interviewed. They were all asked, "Why did you join the Army?" Now, when you ask American soldiers why they joined the Army, usually the response is "college money", "didn't have a good job", "wanted to get out of my hometown" etc. When the Philippine soldiers answered the question, their replies were much more personal, mostly along the lines of, "I didn't want the communists in my village to take my family's farm".

    These soldiers are tough and brave, they give true meaning to the word "selfless-service". Thank you all for your service!

    Try watching the 3rd video in the first video post. Those pnssy reporters interviewing some of the soldiers. There's an English subtitle.

    Third world armies are not so encumbered by technology too.

    She is part of the Navy, The Marines and the Navy share their BDA, this is still true even with their new digitized pattern hence the logos of both the Philippine Navy and Marine Corps are in the new digis

    from my understanding though correct me if I'm wrong...
    The Inspiration to go digital comes from the US Marines' Marpat
    The size of the Pixels are based of the Singaporean Digital Pattern
    The Colors are based from input from combat personnel and are similar to the Armies' DPM

    here are some more pictures from the Balikatan and Carat Exercises
