    The 15 Commandments of Tactical Camouflage-phpk15yrzpm.jpg

    The following is 15 commandments of Tactical Camouflage from the late Colonel David Hackworth aka Hack. If you don’t know who Colonel Hackworth is… Stop what you are doing and read his books. Including Vietnam Primer which is free on the Internet.

    The man was involved in every war from age 14 when he lied about his age to join the Merchant Marines and ditched them to fight with the real Marines in the Pacific to the day he died where he was an embedded reporter who posed as an Active Duty Colonel and advised units on the assault on Baghdad in 2003 as a contributor to Maxim, Newsweek, and Soldier of Fortune. In short he is a complete bad ass. So without further ado the 15 commandments:

    I. Thou shalt not park thy helicopter in the open, for it bringeth the rain of steel.

    II. Thou shalt not expose thy shiny mess gear, for it bringeth unwanted guests to chow.

    III. Thou shalt not wear white T-shirts, or thine enemies will dye them red.

    IV. Thou shalt provide overhead concealment, for thine enemies’ eyes are upon thee.

    V. Thou shalt cover thy tall antenna, for fly swatters groweth not in yon wood.

    VI. Thou shalt use a red lens on thy flashlight, or it shall appear as a star in the East.

    VII. Thou shalt cover the glass on thy vehicle, for the glare telleth thine enemy thy location.

    VIII. Thou shalt blend with thy surroundings, for trees groweth not in yon desert.

    IX. Thou shalt cover the tracks of thy vehicle, for they draweth pretty pictures.

    X. Thou shalt cover thy face, hands, and helmet, for thine enemies maketh war not on bushes.

    XI. Thou shalt not drape thy net on thy tent, for it looketh like tent draped in net.

    XII. Thou shalt hide the wires of thy commo, for they pointeth to thee.

    XIII. Thou shalt practice the art of dispersion, or one round will finish you all.

    XIV. Thou shalt pick up thy trash and litter, for they exposeth thy presence.

    XV. Thou shalt conceal the noise of thy generator, for thine enemies are listening.

    Hack was a great soldier & writer. He also was a frequent contributor to Soldier of Fortune magazine, usually on various bush wars, and insurgencies in the third-world. He also founded the Soldiersforthetruth non-profit (Soldiers for the Truth Foundation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) which helped push the DOD to improve soldiers body armor/equipment to help save lives.
