Old olive drab uniforms
« on: May 01, 2018, 13:53:02 »
So I was going through so old boxes and found some old olive drab uniforms and webbing

Any supply folks, am I good to toss this stuff?

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. - Colin Powell

If I was you I wouldn't toss it. Check if that stuff is what the cadets use these days. Personally, I know plenty of cadets who would love to buy old OD equipment.

By the book it should be returned to your local Clothing Stores.

While it may not be on your docs, some value is recouped in the returns process when it is sold off at CADC as bulk scrap textile.

Yeah, talk to your clothing stores. although the army cadets uses something similiar to the old ODs, they are actually custom made for them. However, OD parkas and mukluks are usually given to cadets. chances are it will either end up as scrap or being sold off to surplus stores where air cadets will gobble them up for FTXs.
