NTSC or PAL for troops in Iraq?

So we have lots of service members here, if someone was sending a DVD over would NTSC or PAL format be the easiest for a member of the service to watch?

Thanks

Seems most would watch on a computer from the states. But that is just a guess. can't you make them region free?

Aliens general, everything about them is alien!

Yes they are region free but they are different formats. Australia/Europe use PAL the US and Canada use NTSC. The Saudis use PAL but if the equipment (TV's) was brought from the US it would be NTSC. Computer can likely play either.

Almost all of the TVs the troops would have are NTSC.

I have a motorcycle addiction... and I get my fix elsewhere.
