Don't need to go that far.STOP IT!
You want Work Dress to come back? The wheels on the bus go round and.......................
I particularly like the oversize glasses and mustache option.....
15 guys. The boots I got are still the most comfortable boots that I have ever been issued.
Around the same time, the RCN got the polyester version of NCDs, which on the face of it made sense. NCDs were expensive, being made from Nomex and (supposedly) fire retardant. Why wear them out on fleet school/shore postings?
The grey-green combats actually weren't that bad in the field and blended in okay if you were in shadows. Not so much standing in an open field of blueberries in Petawawa.But, the Army version had even us nautical oxygen-thieves scratching our heada: So you wear some Hasbro-made-GI Joe-looking DPM rip-off jacket that makes US Army woodland cammo look cool in barracks, but you still use the 50 year old olive green combats in the field? Okaaayyyy…..
If you didn’t have to iron the shirt and pants, spit shine the boots, and wear that terrible jacket with the shirt collar popped out over the jacket collar like a disco star, it wouldn’t have been that bad.
