A lot of the operations are recorded by video cameras- when the tape is reviewed, the soldiers can be identified by their specific number.

If you are interested in your own personal call-sign velcro patch, I make both 3M reflective and IR patches in a multitude of different camo and colour options:

+1 on Perroz Designs Patches I love mine.

I bought mine so it is easier people recognize me via radio and to call me over in the field. Amongst the dozens of other people wearing multicam.
