I wonder why he has the ISAF tag above his Airborne tag.

Because as an American soldier there, he's part of the ISAF

Looks great. Crisp, clear, and the focus on the Sgt. versus the worn out landscape background looks stunning. :iconsaluteplz:

How do you know that he is a Sgt.? He does not wear his ranks.

The description says that the soldier taking the photo was a sgt. it did not state that the paratrooper is a Sgt.

But may i ask; since when is MultiCam the standard Camo? :confused:

MultiCam has become the standard for units deploying to Afghanistan. You'd have to ask the powers that be in the government why they chose to change it, but it's the new in. Though I will add it's only for deployments.
