Rod,Nick - Interesting. Where you a guard or regular unit? What did you see other MP units running? BTW, in the picture this guy doesn't even have an M68 or ACOG but the regular carry handle iron sight which is pretty rare these days.
Toy Scout - non spec ops modified DCU's (no pockets on sleeve). Flag on right sleve BELOW combat patch. Yeah, stupid but the order to put flags on came out w/guys already having combat patches and to keep everyone from resewing stuff they just put it under the patch. No flag on the left sleeve (though spec ops may have had some velcro ones on modified DCUs).
I was in a guard unit working under an active duty MP BN under CMD from a BDE from the Screaming Chickens. CMD was from COB Speicher but my unit was at FOB Brassfield Mora, PB KAufman and a Plt in Mosul. The other MP units I witnessed were equipped pretty much the same as us. We had all the rails on our long arms to include SAW and M240 and even had the lovely EBR and Leupold glassed M14's. Go figure. Maybe things have changed now but who knows.
