      Wasn't sure if it was confirmed or not, so I figured better to be on the safe side. Looked it up, and it seems like everybody who can wear it is wearing it. From Wiki:

      Currently, Dragon Skin is being worn by some civilian contractors in Iraq, some elite special forces in Iraq and Afghanistan[1][2], some SWAT teams [3], 9 generals in Afghanistan,[4][5][6], Department of Energy officials in Iraq, bodyguards tasked with protecting generals [7], NSA and CIA operatives in combat theatre, and U.S. Secret Service personnel [8].
