This is a great photo. Really captures the "soldier." I love their reflection in the puddle, too. Very nice.

I agree, they deserve more attention than us. It's their country and they are doing a good job of stepping up and trying to take control. Yeah they usually wear some kind of armor, although there doesn't seem to be a standard for that yet.

that's really bad ><
Also, that means they risking a lot more! They don't even have kneepads or other stuff
Also, does your unit also wears the traditional kevlar armour?

Yeah, they are definatly risking more than us, I agree. The equipment they have seems to vary from individual to individual, but they usually atleast have some basic armor. I'm not a 100% sure what our armor is made out of.

Oh so big variety there
Well, if you kinda touch it somewhere it and you feel that some plates in it, then it's kevlar.
But what you need is this vest [link]
