    Nah, that's been done before; we have to come up with something new. I'm thinking rhinestone bedazzled ABUs and bags of glitter confetti to sprinkle around the base on Fridays.

    I think that was already approved in a parade downtown, in uniform. Or was that something else? Oh well, give it time.

    LOL!

    Long ago, a major overheard me talking shit about this potbellied captain in a flight suit, I said that he looked like a fat baby in a onesie. The major really chewed me out for being unprofessional, but two days later, half the officers in the section were cracking jokes about Captain Onesie.

    It had to be the same major that chewed me out that spread the story around.

    And he took credit for calling in a onesie.

    Once again, everyone's interpretation of AFIese differs. Wish they'd just write them in black and white.


    Or am I reading your original post wrong? As is "I guess that must be the color of the flying squadron?"
    Took me awhile, but I understand the confusion I started. I didn't mean "must" as directive, I meant it as "must've been blue cause that's what the flyboys are wearing", hence the two color option for some "special Airmen."

    Our squadron has a design contest going. Winner gets a 3 day pass. All shirts must be based off of a sand shirt base. Our pilots came out today wearing just about every different color t shirt you could imagine under their flight suits today.

    Squadrons of all kinds have colors, but I couldn't have told you what they were when assigned there. There was one (22d Supply, yes I'm old) at McConnell I remember. We had early-70s Swingin (Oakland) A's" green and yellow. The bowling team had shirts in those colors, it looked like they went to Rollie Fingers' garage sale.

    Hopefully they didn't clash with their scarves.

    Roger that. Your squadron may have ugly colors, but we are gonna wear that ugly color every Friday because it's our squadron. Starting with the color we wear the other 4 days? What's the point.

    In the early 90s when black was first authorized with BDUs and it later was authorized to wear the unit patch (up to 5 inch diameter), it wasn't that freakin hard. Things that should be easy have become WAY too hard.
