Sometimes it amazes me that more friendly soldiers aren't killed by friendly fire in certain situations. But in this case, how the hell can you not at least think that the guys in front of you may be part of your platoon? Hell, you were following right behind them. Plus, if they were in visual range of each other, why didn't their radios work?

Woah. Can you give some details, or is it top secret?

How about we get the soldiers to wear the Orange Neon Hunting Satefty Vest. The deer never see them wearing them over camoflauge.

the british more or less did this in one war. It didn't quite work out.


FYI, most animals can't see neon orange. It just blurs in with the background. Most dogs have trouble seeing orange balls, etc...
