    Honestly, I think that contractor and civilian DCU's are overlooked by OIF/OEF collectors. For as many contractors as there were, you sure don't find many of the DCU's. Someone said that at one time, there was 1 contracotr for every soldier in theatre! That is a 1:1 soldier to contractor ratio!!!!!!!!! Amazing. Nice pieces for sure.

    I don't think so. Just washed a little bit, and of course, bathed in the sun of the middle east. Maybe I should put baked instead? lol!
