As the Army moves forward with the switch to so-called “pink and green” uniforms that resemble those worn during World War II, the service is making some minor modifications. In a presentation before the Association of the U.S. Army’s Institute of Land Warfare, Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey said the tweaks are aimed at improving “overall fit and performance.”
The design and colors are set and will not change, Dailey told the AUSA audience.
Dailey said that while he was wearing the new dress blues uniform, people on the street mistook him for a Chicago police officer and New York City fire chief.
