Uniforms should be made in the USA

I was dissapointed to see that some components of my Government uniform were made in anohter country. Why can't we make the Unites States government uniforms in the United States? I received a hand me down jacket that was made years ago and it was made in the USA... what happend that we needed to take our business elsewhere? If we had them made in the US it would create jobs.... it would also save money to have the uniforms made locally. The energy (oil) it takes for our uniform to make its long journey back to the US and to our office would be cut drastically. Lowering our carbon footprint and oil consumption and saving money.


There also should be a way to recycle/reuse the patches off of the shirts.
