    Greetings Soldiers and Officers.

    I just have a question about the "dress greens" or "dress blues".I ship out to Fort Benning next week for OSUT.For graduation, will we be issued the classic greens or the new blues?

    Thanks.

    The "new blues" don't exist yet - I just filled out another survey on them last month

    It would not surprise me if you see people graduating in ACUs before long - they are wearing them for everything now. I think the greens are in short supply.

    you'll get the greens. as stated the ASU is not being distributed yet. from what i've heard they might be out fall 2010.

    i too filled out that survey. wow, i used to be excited about the ASU but now seeing all the crap they're considering (again... and again... and AGAIN) might just be a big mess.

    The "new blues" or ASU (Army Service Uniform) is slated for issue late this fall. You can purchase them now through Marlow White, and they are authorized for wear as of now.

    Did they ever make everybody happy and authorize all the bling (spurs, stets, jump boots, etc.) that they originally said they weren't?

    When the ASU is worn with the four-in-hand necktie Jump Boots are authorized. When it is worn with the bowtie they are not.

    I have no idea about stetsons, spurs or any of those other accoutrements.....never been someplace where that stuff was common.

    Spurs and Stetsons are not AR-670-1 uniform items, they are "traditions" so it isn't likely their use will change with the new uniform regs.

    They should go back to khaki for the Class A and B uniforms. Dress Blues ought to be kept as formal tire.

    From an old 20+ years retired vet....ABSOLUTELY!!!!
    Nothing looks better than a starched pair of khaki's with a pair of spit shined jump boots. Then again, somebody (that remembers) will have to teach all the young bucks how to spit shine.....:supergrin:

    That was the part of the day at Knox we all looked forward too...chow then back to the barracks, shining boots on the PT pad and BSing, phone call if we'd earned one, then showers, mail call, and lights out...

    No more shining boots? That's blasphemy, pure unadulterated communism.

    I still remember sitting on the floor in the barracks room, radio or cassette player jamming the latest hits, getting just the right mixture of spit and polish...burning the polish (either in the can or on the boot..remember that?) rubbing, spitting, rubbing..spitting......and watching the perfect glossy shine "snap"..
    These were magic moments. I can sit here typing and still smell the smell of polish. :cool:
