They stop at one of those MickeyD/TCBY/gas station rest places and go in and order. The woman takes a good long stare at their green uniforms and finally thanks them for their selfless devotion to the park service!!!
Memorial Day 1991:

on the flightline at McClellan AFB, California:

its not really an airshow as it is an open house. my aircrew reenactment group (427th Historical Group, [B-17 crew]) was wondering around looking at the displays in WWII flight gear.

a lady in her late 40s early 50s walked up to us and said "Thank you for your service in Saudi Arabia"... we were standing near a C-141 with it's crew in current flight gear. we just shook our heads when she left...

as far as the pointed 'Marine' cover, it's the same style and design that the ARMY and AIR CORP wore from WWII until the 50s when they went to the flat round 'ranger' cap. its just that the marines started starching it sometime after WWII...

the blue/grey/green camoflage pattern actually works pretty well on concrete and vertical structures...

Ugh. Sorry guys, don't like those at all. They don't look very practical. Canadian AF BDU's are pretty good, just standard CADPAT with blue rank insignias on the slip-ons.

I doubt Air For special ops will be wearing that blue crap out on missions.
It is utterly stupid.
I'm sorry but when I see a paper pushing commando with a Black berret, even that cracks me up. Or someone standing guard at the check point... yeah how Commando-ish.
And now this.
Makes me glad I won't be going into the US Military!

I believe I saw Chemo66 post on another thread that the blue BDUs had indeed been scraped due to budgeting considerations.
