Interesting collection of uniforms worn here by Japan Ground Self Defence Force (JGSDF) personnel (browner patterned jackets are lined winter field coats), a US Navy officer, and a member of the US Army Special Forces in a L4 wind jacket from the Army’s new ECWCS (Extended Cold Weather Clothing System). Taken on the helicopter deck of  the dock landing ship USS Tortuga (US 7th Fleet) during humanitarian relief operations following the Japan quake and tsunami in March 2011.
