Army makes it official: Green Class A’s done

The days of the green Class A’s are over.

The Army’s plan to make dress blues the only Army Service Uniform has been approved and soldiers who own the uniform are encouraged to begin wearing it now, the Army announced Wednesday.

The move to eliminate the green uniform is designed to streamline soldiers’ clothing bags while modernizing the way the traditional blue uniform is worn.

The new wear policy was announced Wednesday in an Army-wide message from Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey and Sgt. Maj. of the Army Kenneth Preston.

What's the full uniform for geezer's look like, Trippy? Would you happen to have any piccies, because the uniform for Dorises doesn't look too shabby?

Also, does anybody know if this is equivalent to No 1s or No 2s in the "proppa" army?

Cheers for that, Trippy. So is it just that geezers wear a forage cap with basically the same uniform as the biddies (minus the bulgy bits for the Bristols, obviously), or what?

The pathfinder badge he has hanging off the pocket looks dumb as hell. Glad I don't have to worry about wearing that uniform now. He looks like an air force puke.

Did you read the announcement?

1.) Berets can be worn with all the variations of the uniform.

1a.) The Service hat (Picture below) will be optional, unless specified by command for berets or the Service hat.)

2.) The bloused black boots will only be worn by people in the Airborne, Rangers Military police (On duty) and Special Forces soldiers. Others will wear low quarter's or boots not bloused.

3.) The male uniform in the picture w/white shirt is what we call a Class 'B' uniform. The wearing of the blue blouse would make it a Class 'A' uniform. I have no idea about your military's uniform designations, compared to ours.

There isn't a whole lot of difference between the female blouse and the male version.

The class 'B' version will be nice for hot climates, where the majority of our bases and forts are located. (AL, NC, GA. etc.)

BTW: You can view pictures of various Blue and other US uniforms here:

I didn't see a path finder badge on the uniform. If he was to wear a path finder badge it would be on the left breast.

The right side there are places for mini-metal versions of their combat patch and the unit assigned patch. Notice the female has a 3rd ID combat patch.

That looks awful. They should just keep the full blues for fall/winter and gone back to the old summer khakis.

The summer khakis were sharp looking.

Even Walts dress better than that. Looks abysmal, the bloke looks like he's done a frontal assault on McDonalds, and the bint just needs to issue a few parking tickets to get into character.
