Persian gulf. I've always thought desert camouflage looked coolest.

WWII for me. The iconic look of the American GI.

WW2/Korean War era uniforms were so sweet! I wished I had served during that time period.

Persian Gulf. Largely because of the helmets with the rhino mounts...they just look cool and I never did like the look of steel pot helmets. The Vietnam guys DID have a sort of bad ass look to them but they also had a pretty serious "rag bag" look to them too. I liked the WW2 look as well but the steel pots bring it back down for me once again.

WW2 for me. It looks awesome but the older troop uniforms were still cooler.

From those pictures, Vietnam. They look like the U.S. Army equivalent of the Outsiders.
