It has been almost an entire year since the first incarnations of the Army’s “prospective new dress uniform” debuted to the public.
Now, the Army is just “days away” from an ultimate decision on the uniforms and whether they will be mass produced.
The new pinks and greens, which are a throwback to the WWII-era uniforms of the same name, “would replace the current Army Service Uniform for official events,” with the ASU being “upgraded to a formal dress uniform.”
SMA Dailey disclosed to Army Times last week that Army Secretary Mark Esper and Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley are “preparing to make an announcement.”
For the time being, however, the Army’s top leaders will continue to solicit feedback from soldiers.
Dailey also added that the new uniform, which was finalized this year, will not cost taxpayers anything.
