Patrol Base If you are alert all night on ambush you have to rest during the day. And if you and your uniform are wet you have to dry out in the sun. It may not look good but there is no other way if you are staying in the field for long periods. With the sun full up D Company, 1st of the 11th INF, rests after an all nighter. That is Company Commander CPT Stan Blunt in the foreground.
