I like the new cammo pattern. It’s a vast improvement over the ACUs however this part of the article bothers me.
The new uniforms are of the same material and cut that Soldiers are already wearing in the Army Combat Uniform or ACU. It is the camouflage printed on the fabric that will be different. The change allows commanders in Afghanistan to have more options in deciding how best to equip their Soldiers.
We have too much velcro on current uniforms and they wear out fast. Get rid of most of the velcro and zipper and put buttons which can be fixed back on uniform then I’ll be happy.
