So, as an act of rebellion, many of the young US soldiers started to decorate the camouflaged cloth covering of their metal helmets.

At first it was with simple things like the name of their girlfriend or their favourite music band
But as the war progressed, slogans, symbols and doodles started to appear on the troop’s helmets; with many protesting against the war itself.
