Here we see, US #Soldiers get wet and dirty as they prep their Ghillie Suits during training at the U.S. Army’s Sniper School at Fort Benning, GA.

A ghillie suit is typically made of a net or cloth garment and covered in burlap strips, cloth, or twine. … Today, ghillie suits are used by snipers all around the world in foliage, sand, and even snow. Their origin, however, can be traced back to the game attendants and folklore of the Scottish Highlands. The word ghillie actually comes from a Scots Gaelic term meaning “boy”. This was in reference to boy servants that assisted in hunting and fishing expeditions. #Army #USArmy

The current suit is known as the Flame Resistant Ghillie System, or FRGS. The replacement the Army is looking for will be called the Improved Ghillie System, or IGS.
