Hygiene and special forces soldiers?

What hygiene measures do special forces or snipers take before going out on missions that could take weeks? e.g. the LRRPs of Vietnam

    In the military you go out into the field for 30-90 days at a time for training purposes. Usually you go 2-3 weeks at a time without a traditional shower. Baby wipes are great. Each day or so you use them to wash your privates (pun intended) and to wash your under arms and call it good.

    When you are in a combat zone, you really don't have time to think about personal hygiene, your foremost thought is to stay alive and do your job. If you have to go in your pants, you go and worry about cleaning yourself up later. War is not pleasant so stay in school and learn ways to keep our country out of war.

    Huh? What measures are there to take? You just do the job and wash up when you can--not anything special to do.
