One utility uniform for all services

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

We are a joint fighting force, Airmen are working hand in hand with the Army, Navy and Marines and vice versa. Instead of there being 4 distinctly different utility uniforms, create one all service utility uniform for everyone. All services wear the same utility uniform eliminating the need to have blue, green, brown, and gray camo, instead pick the most logical one and make it for everyone. Reduce cost in production, cost for the members, cost for the space to house them in military clothing, cost for the warehouse space to store all these various types of uniforms, and create a truly "joint" force. All I see that the different utility uniforms create is disparity amongst members (not a true joint atmosphere). We need to promote teamwork, not competition in a joint service and to do this we need to walk the walk and truly start looking like a joint service.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
