BAWIDAMANN PINUP/WOOBIE USA BLANKET
What the heck is a Woobie?
Over the centuries there have been some amazing military innovations: supersonic aircraft, self-guided missiles, MREs, the USO! But none of these can hold a candle to the greatest invention known to a tired and work worn soldier — their “woobie.” Ask any soldier how they feel about their woobie, and they will get a warm smile on their face and extol the virtues of this cherished bit of equipment. It is perhaps the most-loved item in the armed forces.
The woobie is an all-weather poncho-liner/blanket that consists of two layers of sturdy nylon wrapped around a polyester filling and then quilted. They are designed to trap heat and keep the wet and cold out, but are light enough to pack anywhere and use on warmer nights. Introduced to the army in the 1960s during the Vietnam War when troops needed something to keep them dry and warm in the wet jungles and during cool nights these tie-in poncho liners became a huge hit... and not just for lining ponchos. The popular covering gained it's nickname 'woobie' around the 1990s and it stuck. It wasn't just the soldiers who loved their blankets, spouses, girlfriends and kids back home fell in love too. The woobie is lightweight, remarkably resistant to both heat and cold and dries quickly when wet. It can easily be folded and stashed in a bag or pack. It's universally loved by just about everyone who comes in contact with one.
