I did a camo cake a couple years ago. It's in my photos a few pages back. I just mixed up icing to get a tan, dark green(leaf green with a little black), brown, and a sage green. Unless they're are really into camo uniforms and are going to hold up a uniform next to the icing I don't think they will notice if they match. If you are going for a desert como then use shades of tan, light grey and off white.
