US Army Brings Back WWII Era “Pink and Greens”

The US Army is bringing back the WWII era uniforms as their new daily uniform. The Pink and Greens are not scheduled to go into use until 2020, but Army recruiters will start rockin’ their new threads this month. Every soldier will be required to wear the throwback uniform by 2028.

“………the general public recognizes the Army Greens, and identifies the uniform “with the greatest generation…….”
