  • Retired-U.S. Army Green Service Uniform

    Article is several months old, however I know our international members will be interested in this.

    The green service uniform has finally been laid to rest after 61 years of approved wear, the vast majority of that stretch as the service uniform that defined the Army.
    As of Oct. 1, (2015) the "Green Class A's" are no longer permitted for wear.
    From 1902 through World War II soldiers wore an olive and/or khaki/tan combination of some sort. But then the Army wanted a sharp, classic and dignified look to distinguish soldiers in a postwar era.
    Enter the Army Green Uniform in 1954. The dark green color ("shade 44") was a throwback to the distinctive color for rifle units back in Revolutionary times, and was recommended to the Army by scientists and fashion experts.

    P.S-full-color shoulder patch's (signifying Numbered Army, Corp, Command, Division, Brigade, or Regiment) are no longer worn.

      So, after doing away with full-color embroidered shoulder patch's in 2011, they will return with this uniform? Great!

      “The jersey of the greatest team on earth” is how the 2012 “More Than a Uniform” ad rightly described the uniform of the United States Army. As the “pinks and greens” prototype uniform debuted at this week’s Association of the U.S. Army convention, and as the baseball postseason descends on us, we are reminded that throwback jerseys are always the appropriate choice to not only show pride in a team, but also in that team’s storied history.


      Pinks and greens are the must-have throwback uniform of the U.S. Army at its finest: the 1945 world championship team that left it all on the field in a nerve-wracking, seven-game slog that awes us even today.

        I saw that news with photos also of the pinks and greens. The female uniform didn't look the same to me for some reason, maybe my memory sucks. The full color shoulder patch, IMO, was important and held importance, the colors mean things, and even though the subdued patch is most often worn....the color ones should be worn on dress uniforms IMO.
        But they don't ask me. LOL....
