I wasn't saying we were the first to wear camo netting on our helmets. Shit, we wore burlap strips in our helmet covers in basic training. In recent history though, as in the last few years, we were the only ones I know of that it was the SOP both on deployment and in garrison. I'm just saying that if you see a picture of Soldiers in Afghanistan wearing camo netting on their helmet then it is a very good chance they are 3rd Brigade, 10th Mountain Division.
Canadians have been doing this since 1930's. Not so much in Afghan, some guys still do though.
