What's Your Type?

Wearing a tan T-shirt with his blood type stencilled on it, U.S. Army Sgt. Shane Placke, an engineer from the 4th Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division, assigned to Forward Operating Base Shaf, works at FOB Farah, Dec. 11, 2009, Farah, Afghanistan. "You can lose your dog tags and your cat eyes, but your shirt is the last thing they take off," said U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Augusto Pineiro, explaining why he required Placke and the rest of his squadron to get the T-shirts made prior to their deployment to Afghanistan.
