Sure, I remember; dual-tex camo, what a pain to paint. the XO helped to invent the stuff while at West Point too. Even the "Bull" hated the paint jobs. I talked to our ex Squadron XO a couple of years ago. He retired a Lt. Colonel; one of the few officers in our Squadron hierarchy who didn't go on to make General.
