Our take on the survey results: The blue Army Service Unifom which replaced the dressier Army Blue uniform and the standard green service uniform worn in a couple of variations since is not quite as loathed, but there is no love for it. Having to be the adult in the room, he asks the reasonable question: The previous hats worn with the service uniform were both hated, too: Women had different hats, which they hated, too.
No one seems to discuss one reason that the specialist forces prize their berets: For example, after a period in which the red and gold of the Free Vietnam flag was banished, 5th Special Forces Group recently reclaimed those colors on its black flash.
Initially, when the black beret was inflicted on the Army as a whole, and the Rangers given a tan beret as a consolation prize, there was some talk that regular Army units would be permitted to develop their own flashes to accommodate their own unit pride, but this was quickly crib-smothered on cost and uniformity grounds, and every soldier wears the same blue flash with white stars.
This may mean different hats for men and women, which the men and women are cool with but the womyn and social justice warriors are not. The field uniform hat, which basically is the old vintage field cap and which the Rangers kept alive during the grim baseball-cap yearsseems popular enough.

Please the women who wear it, unlike the frumpy WWII version; Clearly be the same service as the stuff the guys wear; Be of sufficiently practical style it can be worn every day by office workers and not put them at a disadvantage relative to women in other services and civilian co-workers.
Be of sufficiently classic style so as not to look dated by Be clearly female in design; flatter the wide range of shapes that comprise our fit female soldiers.
Fat people looking fat in it is not a reason to reject a uniform. Trigglypuff, this means you. How do you get to that end state? And you could get a highly rated reality show out of it.
The Army has, to the great mirth of our Marine peers, been through lots of hasty and ill-considered uniform changes. Freeze it, in terms of design language, for fifty years.
By then, soldiers wearing these new uniforms will have added incredible new tales to Army lore, and brilliant new streamers to the Army colors. This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by Hognose.
