The Frogskin camo pattern in World War 2 is most commonly associated with US Marine Corps troops in the Pacific. However, it was also utilized by a very limited number of US Army units in the European Theater, such as the 41st Infantry Regiment in the Normandy Campaign.

The pattern was extremely short-lived in the ETO and it was quickly withdrawn from US Army usage due to its significant visual resemblance to German camouflage of the period.
