Default Combat Beards, Combat Effective



Strange but seemingly true. The pentagon did a study on beards and combat effectiveness of them. Apparently they are effective.

So that's why my AR hates everyone else but me. I don't always shave. lol :D

Sorry about that. I posted a link but I guess the site flubbed it up.

Lets see if the above one will work.

[Edit] Ah ha! It worked. :)

It depends on the mission also IMHO. In Indian Army, Paracos and certain special units posted in Kashmir are allowed to grow beards because it helps them integrate better with the local population. This is also true of the US Army in A-stan I believe where personnel mingling with locals are allowed such leeway.

“It’s settled science. In light of this information we will enforce a rule requiring all males to wear at least one inch of facial hair at all times.

Furthermore, any females able to grow facial hair are encouraged to do so as well.”
