    Re: Army getting rid of the ASU already?

    First off, I liked the green uniform. I wore it for 20 years, and was just fine with it.

    I also purchased my own set of dress blues; I looked smokin' hot in the blues, so that might color my opinion. It's over, it's done, the end has begun. If you listen to fools, the mob rules.

    Now that the blues are the ASU, we just need to return the gold stripe to ALL pants. It is fucking stupid to make an officer uniform, anyway. Service stripes also need to be included. That gold trim looks great on the sleeves.

    And quit fucking competing with the Marines; they win. Let it go.

    Everyone will wear gold trouser stripes EXCEPT Specialist and below. A Gold on Blue version of the current Service Stripes and Overseas Bars are authorized for the Blue ASU. As for competing with the Marines, I agree with you, but not for the same reason. I am glad that we aren't competing with the Marine Corps because that was the lesson of getting rid of the Greens and the Whites, and killed the global schedule that prescribed just which Class A was authorized in which climate zone.

    If they do change or get rid of the ASU I hope "they" make the right decision this time. On my current assignment we are required to wear ASU's once a week. I work with all civilians and when I come in they always joke about delivering the mail or driving a bus. I always put an end to the jokes but it is frustrating (to say the least) that the Army puts us in something that even GS/DoD employees don't respect.

    You get bonus points for the Sabbath reference. And if your "Rizzo" name is in any way affiliated with the Jerky Boys, you will be awarded even more points.

    Agreed. There used to be a thing as pride and tradition. I still have pride, but still working out that whole tradition thing. The uniform is a good part of tradition. I could care less what they do with BDU/ACU/OCP/next flavor or battle uniform, but dang, the garrison uniforms? Really? I went many, many years with that ugly green crap, the blue ASU is a step above, but too many accessories. Maybe modify the ASU instead of wholesale replace. Kill that CSIB, my CIB makes up for it. Maybe a sew-on FWS on the right shoulder. Whatever the changes, dang, stick with it.

    I agree with you sir. I hope they change that white color shirt and get rid of the CSIB.

    I took the online survey and voted for a gray shirt and sew-on unit and combat patches.
