MISSION # 5113 | Josh Bowers | United States Army Special Forces
The desert tiger stripe uniform is an arid environment option from the ever popular tiger stripe. Made famous from its service in Vietnam, this pattern still maintains pop culture in today’s fashion. The Desert Tiger Stripe variant was developed by @tigerstripeproducts and the uniform is solely owned by @tru-spec. First utilized in Operations Desert Shield/Storm, this colorway and uniform stood the test of time and was utilized by US Special Operation Forces and Professional Elite Security Organization during Operation Enduring and Iraqi Freedom.
Mission # 5113 comes to us by way of our friend Josh. 5113 was issued and utilized during Operation Iraqi Freedom while Josh was working to establish Iraq’s premier counter terrorism force’s sniper unit. Originally developed by an Other Governmental Agency, Soldier’s from the U.S. Army 5th Special Forces Group were tapped to conduct the training, advising, and assistance of this unit. From 2009-2010 This uniform was proudly worn during multiple combat missions in support of OIF. Josh’s career as a sniper and sniper instructor would blossom as Josh would move on to be the Team Sergeant of a Special Reconnaissance ODA, with multiple Sniper/Observer teams which would deploy numerous times to the Levant region of the Middle East. Josh’s career as a sniper would continue as he became the NCOIC of the US Army’s Special Forces Sniper School, charged with training the world’s best soldiers in advanced rifle marksmanship and sniper operations. Josh’s career continues today with employment at JSOC.
Eighth Order would like to Thank Josh for his service to our Nation and for his donation to our community. Mission #5113 will continue to support our nation by extending its tour of service with Eighth Order. 5113 will be disassembled and assigned to a sewing team in Chicago. Once assigned Eighth Order will open up the orders for this mission and prepare 5113 to take its new form. You can own a piece of history and tell a story of how American Warriors keep us safe at night while also supporting veterans in their fight against PTSD and suicide.
