If I were to guess he was on base and heard casualties were coming in so he put on his armor and went out to help.

I clicked the photo and it appears it is a stock photo because they linked it to the Petraeus/McChrystal ordeal. It doesn't look like it has a caption, or it might, but It's not linked to the article and I don't have time to find it.
I will tell you from my experiences in Iraq that judging by what these servicemembers are wearing, they are not on a mission, but ran to help after an attack.
They are wearing their flak vest and helmets to protect themselfs from other attacks. And the person on the left without his BDU top appears that he ran out of his office or quarters to assist with the wounded. (While inside on duty, in your own work station, you can take your top off).
The person to the right wearing exwercise gear (PT gear) either was just exercising or he did have time off because over there, PT gear is considered lounge gear.

Is all that marching about necessary? Yes sure it is, it shows me how normal everyday people can be made to look like fools while being paid killers.

And once again we get a response from the "I hate the US military" peanut gallery.


When you're not on duty, you can either wear your uniform or PT gear (Shorts, tshirt, running shoes). In some places of the AOR, you still carry your weapon 24/7.
