I freely admit I have no interest at all in college sports, so this is an honest question: Does the Army team really wear camo helmets?
Just to add emphasis...look at their numbers on their jersey's and note the color scheme.
Wow, I didn't think it was possible to beat the Denver Bronco's throwback uniforms, but the Army does it by a long shot.
Christ, is there no occasion that Today's Action Army considers inappropriate for wearing fatigues? I wish I could go back and rub my old First Shirt's face in this for the hard time he used to give me for getting caught in Class C's stopping at the Southern Pines Stop-n-Rob.
Yet another successful Army PR scheme. They've been on a roll for a few years now. I am starting a grass roots campaign to bring back "Be all you can be," bring back a garrison uniform that looks professional and get rid of the f$cking black beret.
bg - the problem is that we'd need to go back to something like 1946 to get back to something like dignity. The old wool OD Class A's (and "pinks-and-greens" for the officers) were the last really decent looking garrison uniform we had if you discount the summer khakis (and I don't know if anyone remembers the "slimy limey" women's summerweight Class A uniform but it was proof that not everything was better Back In The Day).As for the black rag, well...I've never understood it. The red beret had a European association with paratroops (at least a British one, anyway), the green and (original) black with their own units. I thought that the p-cap was a perfectly servicable Class C headgear; it kept the sun and rain off and you could pull the earflaps down in the cold.But whatever. The Army is obsessed about their camoflage and seems determined to sport it whenever it can.
