Okay, BLUE cammies? WTF? Why not just give them a sky blue jumper with fleecy little clouds on it? Or maybe that dayglo orange and red cammo you can get at the mall? As far as a flag on the sleeve, why not green it down, or at least mute the colors? Let's see, blue helmets, red white and blue sleeves, why not boots with flashing lights that play the Star-Spangled Banner as you sneak through the jungle? What's next, requiring Brigade HQ to fly a 12'x18' American flag from it's concealed position? This is ridiculous crap dreamed up by morons who have no regard for the lives of their soldiers. Also, if all the services SHARED the same BDU's, wouldn't that simplify the production/distribution of uniforms? $5 says one of Bush's campaign supporters owns the company that will get the contract for these monstrosities.

HEY! Don't give USAF any ideas like this - someone might think its a good idea and go for it! (Personally, I think the clouds sound cute - on preschooler’s jumper ) Seriously, the Blude BDUs are a concept not an acutal uniform

I think we would, but the US Flag Code prohibits anything but full color.

We did until the Marines changed to the digitized pattern and that move started long before George Bush became president.

Okay, I can see the flag being full color, I can even see requiring it to be worn, but maybe just smaller? Also, how long have US forces been required to wear it while deployed? I guess it doesn't matter if it's worn by non-deployed troops.

The "Chair Force" needs new BDUs because why do they need woodland anyway?

Mainly for the Combat Controllers and Pararescue Jumpers.

yeah but for CCTs and PJs, but if your around the base the correct camofaluge would be brick with windows painted. So the idea of riding your bike across the base wearing woodland BDUs makes mo since

I was just over at Vandenberg AFB Friday and I saw the new uniforms in person for the first time. That blue is a hell of a lot brighter than it looks in those photographs. Looks like Jean Claude van Damme's uniform in Street Fighter.
