The "black face" camo was very common among both divisions as it was a night time drop.. There were many different things used.

In my search there was only the one small group within the 101st. that used the "War paint". I have not seen any documentation to support that this was widely practiced. Nor have I seen any documentation to suggest it was used in the 82nd at all.
