re: "Army Combat Uniform"
"The Army Combat Uniform (ACU) is the third bad idea to come out of the modern Army in the last few years. The other two, in no real order, are: issuing the black beret to every Soldier, and the introduction of the Combat Action Badge (C.A.B.). There are other bad ideas, but these are the top three that don’t include dumb ideas that kill people."
"The ACU does not look good. It looks sloppy. It looks like someone’s idea of what a future uniform should look like, like something out of a movie. Velcro and fancy pockets on the lower legs, the crazy pattern and colors. Supposedly the uniform was designed with the in put of Soldiers. I can’t think of one Soldier I know that actually likes the uniform. It costs more, much more than a set of BDUs, the patches and name tapes cost more. The best I have heard about the ACU is it’s comfortable."
