Re: Scale of issue for hot weather socks

I would do a lot of unspeakable things to get more of those socks. I never wear the sock system and love those brown socks.

I was lucky to deploy twice in quick succession so I got a good supply of those.  I normally wear those with wool socks.

It's funny because there are many who absolutley love those socks! I was never gone on them myself. And I had access to thousands! I am a white tube-sock kinda guy.

I thought so?  Although during my first deployment, they tried to issue me a few pairs of knee-high tan polyester dress socks.
