Designed for treating a wide variety of large wounds and those with exposed organs or requiring the maintenance of moisture at the wound site, the Multi Bandage incorporates the innovative features of the entire Emergency Bandage series plus adds a unique moisture-sealing plastic sheet to the 12” x 12” bandage pad of the Military Abdominal Field Dressing. Unique features include the Stop & Go release, providing controlled application of the bandage without the risk of unraveling, and the Handle Loop, a fold at the end of the Wrapping Leader that maintains placement and aids proper positioning on the wound. For self-application, the Handle Loop facilitates correct bandaging. The bandage is double vacuum packed to ensure its integrity and sterility while tear notches opposite each other on the outer packaging enable easy opening.

The Moisture Seal is a non-adherent plastic sheet that seals in and maintains moisture and the trapped cooling effect on a wound that has been doused with water. In cases of exposed organs, the moisture prevents the formation of adhesions. Attached on the four corners of the pad, the Moisture Seal opens with the bandage to cover a 60 x 60 cm wound. When not required, the Moisture Seal, the sheet can easily be detached, allowing the bandage to be used as needed.

Special Forces' Wear of Non-Standard Uniforms

W. Hays Parks

In February 2002, newspapers in the United States and United Kingdom published complaints by some nongovernmental organizations (“NGOs”) about US and other Coalition special operations forces operating in Afghanistan in “civilian clothing.”

The reports sparked debate within the NGO community and among military judge advocates about the legality of such actions.At the US Special Operations Command (“USSOCOM”) annual Legal Conference,
May 13–17, 2002, the judge advocate debate became intense. While some attendees raised questions of “illegality” and the right or obligation of special operations forces to refuse an “illegal order” to wear “civilian clothing,” others urged caution.The discussion was unclassified, and many in the room were not privy to information regarding Operation ENDURING FREEDOM Special Forces, its special mission units,or the missions assigned them.

Special Forces MUFTI

 Delta Force during the hunt for Laden in the mountains of Tora Bora.

Most Professional Soldiers would tell you that the best camouflage in the world is to dress in native garb (Mufti) and behave like the locals, and very often you'll find “Special Forces” guys (armed with their excellent language skills and cultural sensitivities) doing just that, even when they are visiting friendly host nations.When“going native”proves impossible SF Guys might then buy European or Other foreign-made clothes so they can pose as anything but American.Given the risk for military personnel of overseas exposure these days, this makes a lot of sense. As always, flexibility is the key to their actions.
