    I say a female in the Commissary the other day and she had on a blue/gray colored style of camouflaged uniform. I should have stopped her but did not. Can anyone tell me what you call this uniform?

    I call it "ugly", but, yes, it is the NWU.

    My unit, NSF Guam, just switched to these. We've been in the woodland BDU's. I have to say, they've grown on me.

    The thing I don't like is not having an embroidered Security Forces badge due to the embroidered ACE on the left pocket. We now wear our metal badge on the left pocket flap.

    Check out the NWU type 2 and type 3, these are for use in a tactical environment.
