Here is a picture of a Marine in the South Pacific using the local foliage for camo

Sometimes you just have to adapt and improvise.

Where? I just see a picture of trees and weeds!

Isn't that a poison ivy leaf?

I don't know if he has one in the back. I'm just glad he has one in the frond.

The cigarette gives him away.

You guys are too much.

I'm sure he is much cooler …

I did not know the Johnny Weissmueller served in the USMC. Interesting that he is carrying a folding-stock paratrooper model carbine.

It's because he's a Para Marine on Guadalcanal, duh <grin>

Yes, IIRC, the USMC at that time had 2 Para Bns & 2 Raider Bns. IIRC 1 Para Bn & both Raider Bns were at Guadalcanal. IIRC, later in the war, '44(?). These units were disbanded and absorbed into other USMC units.
