Congress steps in on CAMO issue

Recommended Posts

We all wore the same uniform (BDUs) for 20+ years until early 2000s and it worked out just fine.  We changed because we suddenly had the money to due to the surplus of war money pouring in.  Each branch having their own uniform promotes branch individuality, but costs a lot in the long run.  America is broke and its time to tighten the purse strings.  Think about how much we could save if we minimized the patterns to 2 or 3?

 

Besides, ACUs are hard to upkeep and that leads to lower standards, which is partly why the ACU looks like dogshit.

The overall cost savings I would imagine might not be bad if you forced the services to utilize the same camo patterns.  This would reduce individual branch costs to develop new patterns and the overall incurred cost of outfitting the entire military.

 

I agree they have bigger fish to fry, but this is an important part of our government and there is still work to be done.

Use whatever works, save lives and gives us the advantage. Nothing is 100%. I have always hated Velcro on uniforms, No shine boots, Before I got out I seen some troopers uniforms looking like hammered dog shit.but not in my Company! You did not have to starch and was warned not too. But a good iron to it, is and was a must. I better never see buttons undone and the only thing I better see in cargo pockets is your cover while in Garrison!

I always taught have a couple uniforms for nothing but Garrison ( or around the armory) if we were doing a STX.

 

If we had  a FTX or on AT.then I had some other policies that I followed. But for the most part I had some good troopers and had some awesome CSM's that were outstanding teachers, especially CSM Garrett
