29 August 2008 - 04:37 PMIt happens. I went to the field for 3 weeks and when I got back my bank account was wiped. And I had my debit card with me (for emergency purposes. No, we didn't do any raids on a 7/11 for slurpees).
For someone to access a secure military database or whatever, you would need more information than a name, unit, rank, and branch of service. After all, we post that stuff all over our uniform for the world to see, and our rank is considered a title, like Dr. or Mr. For access to secure sites (and I am not just talking about AKO) you typically need a social security number and/or username, a password, and administrative authority to access that site. Most of the time you also need to plug your military ID card into a card reader as well.
The information needed did not come from a picture of your brother in uniform.
24 August 2008 - 10:05 AMThe most predominant color in your suit should be tan. Brown and olive are two good choices for colors that can be used to break up the tan. A suit with these colors can be used in pretty much any environment. Stay away from gray, black, and other similar colors. They will always look out of place.
Remember that a ghillie suit is designed to be used with natural vegetation. Meaning, your ghillie suit is merely the base layer for you to add bits of vegetation to. Because of this, you could do an entire suit out of just tan and brown and be okay.
After you are done making your ghillie, it is a good idea to 'wash' it. Wet down a patch of dirt, grass, and gravel. Drag your suit through it several times and then let it dry. This dulls down the bright colors of the new jute, shreds and clumps the ghillie a little bit, and makes it look more natural. After it dries completly, beat it against a wall or the side of your house to get rid of excess dirt and sand.
Use a 'fro' comb or metal toothed hair pick to comb out the ghillie if it is too clumped. You can also use your fingers.
Read this thread, I think it will help you out:
