Army Set to Bring Back WWII Uniform and Soldiers Love It!

The Sergeant Major of the Army, Dan Dailey, wants to make the Army a little more vintage. Daley is leading an effort to bring back what is quite possibly the Army’s most iconic uniform: the classic WWII era “Pink and Greens.” You will recognize the look from countless war films and classic photos such as the one below:

Dailey has a good chance of making this happen too. According to a report in Army Times, the Sergeant Major will be making the case to bring back the uniform to the Army’s uniform board meeting later this month. During the interview, Dailey said the following of the uniform:

That was the uniform of the ‘Greatest Generation.’ There was a lot of prestige and honor associated with that. The American public identified with that uniform. We think that is more appropriate than trying to create something new.

He is also armed with a survey, sent to thousands of Army enlisted men and women, asking if a return to the WWII uniform is preferable to today’s Army uniform. The results, as reported by the Army Times:

In February, at Dailey’s request, Army Times emailed a survey about the pinks and greens to about 28,000 active-duty Army Times subscribers. Respondents had about a week to respond, and more than 5,000 of them did.

About 77 percent of respondents — all of whom said they were active-duty soldiers — said they like the World War II uniform. In addition, 72 percent said they would like the uniform to come back as an optional item, and almost 59 percent said they prefer it over the Army Service Uniform worn today.

Dailey said that the return to the uniform will be a nod to the Army’s treasured history and also provided a much-needed “formality” uniform to wear during regular business that is not a combat camouflage uniform.

On social media, Army enlisted and retired alike rejoiced in the proposition:
