Soldiers are amazing innovators, adapting to the situation. Duct tape definitely is an asset...so how have you used it, or seen it used in field?

Duct tape and cord - but I was always pretty proud of my TV stand in Afghanistan.

How about a duct tape wallet?

Seriously, though, I've seen it used to repair tents, as rope, to hold torn uniform items together.

That would be tough to do, SSG (Join to see), since I copied it off the web. :-)

That's at least the most audacious use of duct tape I've ever seen.....if it was really used for the parachute.
