Should have just kept woodland and made it "ours".  Annnnd.  Done.


That would make it a Corporate UniformTM, which we already have. Personally, I think eliminating camouflage uniforms altogether (at least for senior members) would be a great way to go.


Agreed, I like the BBDU's especially now with the darker nametapes.  It seems to represent more of what we actually do.  I've seen FEMA USAR teams, SAR Organizations, Disaster Medical Assistance Teams.  Teams from Metropolitan Medical Response system teams all wearing a Blue BDU variant of one form or another.

Uniforms aren't really issued on a deployment line anymore.  If you need them they are purchased at the Supply Store.


Yes they are.
I always end up with different kit when I deploy.
When was the last time you deployed to a warzone?  ;)

Are you USAF?  Uniforms for deployments are not issued.  They are purchased and not taken back if there is a different type required than the normal uniform.

Army here.
The USAF bubbas I work with always get issued theater-specific uniforms.
The folks heading to the CENTCOM AOR sure as heck aren't purchasing $3000 worth of OCP to head downrange.
What are you talking about?

More importantly: When do I get to wear my OCP/Multicam to CAP meetings?
Pretty sure Ned said real soon in some prior reply. :)

The AF bubbas unit makes the purchase for them.  Issued implies an expectation of being returned.  I am very familiar with the AF deployment process.  So please try again...

I am Air Force and have deployed many times and have never had to purchase theater specific uniforms.  Since when did the AF make people pay for all of that gear?  MCSS where I am doesn't even sell the theater specific uniforms or related items.

Your clothing items were/are purchased by your unit.  The gear helmet, cover IOTV are provided from IPE.
