The Army has about 2 million and one things it could focus on instead of fucking with another uniform fiasco. It's fairly simple Dress Blues, Class A's (Greens), Class B's (take the jacket off from the A's or if you really want give them a khaki short sleeved shirt),Class C's (for combat prep and training) and PT's.

Howfuckinghard is it for the powers that be to stop fucking with tradition and focus on teaching soldiers to do their job?

So are they ditching the black beret now for a WWII bomber pilots cap?

Jesus, this poll should be how many ways can the army brain trust find to waste time and money.

Either I am dumb or I can't vote. The Army can't make up its mind... pick a uniform, get over yourself.

The Army’s top enlisted soldier and his posse of “pinks and greens” models headed to Capitol Hill on Tuesday to show lawmakers what the service is working on.

Leadership is leaning toward a belted version of the uniform, inspired by World War II-era Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Marshall, Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey told Army Times
