The new Navy Working Uniform

Recommended Posts

How do other countries do their camo? I think the UK has the DPM for all branches. Also can somebody tell me

why on board a ship personel,other than USMC, need camo. Why does the Army need a different camo pattern

than the Marines. My opinion, all thats needed are 2 patterns for everybody, something for the sand and something

for the woods,all this other is just a way for people to make money by making others have to spend theirs. It puts

the burden on the back of the the service man/woman.

Yeah the Navy is giving E-1 to E-6 khakis. Khaki blouse, black trousers and black garrison cover. In my NJROTC unit we're supposed to get these blue NWUs for next year. I don't particularly care for them. It's just like the Air Force with their failed blue BDUs. In my opinion the branches should just pick a camouflage and stay with it. All these changes are expensive. Just my thoughts.


Is this failed blue USAF BDU anything special? I saw a whole bunch of these being sold for US $20.00 a set new!

You can say that again! These changes are expensive to the DoD but VERY expensive for the servicemen.

After spending a couple hundred dollars for Desert boots and desert cammies once I got to the FMF they came out with the digital pattern wich cost me an additional $775 + out of pocket after getting two pair of $150 boots 5 pair of $75 dollar cammies plus name tapes 8 point covers, boonie covers and helmet covers, all of which the soldier has to buy out of pocket. The $100 a year uniform allowance doesn't even pay for one pair of the new boots which are "unservicable" after one scuff since you can't repair or polish them.




The new Navy uniform is very cool, however, call me naive,

but the servicemen have to shell out for their own uniforms???
