Here, repeated images, such as can be generated by computers, raise questions about individual identity and the nature of soldiering. The soldier is part of a fighting unit defined by his uniform, but each is still a unique individual, a real person who may die in the course of duty. And despite wearing uniform, soldiers go to great lengths to bring a sense of individuality to their appearance, even with the khaki and olive drab of today.
