…. of New WWII-Style Uniform.

"The U.S. Army's new uniform may look a lot like the iconic pinks-and-greens worn during World War II, but senior leaders decided to drop the pinks and go with Army Greens as the official name.

Pinks and greens "was a World War II nickname given to it by the soldiers because one of the sets of pants had a pink hue to them. So that is where it came from," Sergeant Major of the Army Daniel Dailey said recently.

Both the photo caption, and later in the text, mention 2020 for the uniform which makes a lot more sense than 2028.

Retro fashion. They are harking back to the glory days of WW2. Wonder why?
