What is old is new again.
The U.S. Army announced on Veterans Day that it is bringing back a uniform from the World War II era for soldiers to wear as its service uniform.
The uniform, known as the “Army Greens,” will become the everyday business-wear for all soldiers.
The current “Army Blues” uniform will return to being a formal dress uniform, according to a news release posted by the Army on its website.
The “Army Combat” uniform — also known as the Operational Camouflage Pattern — will remain the Army’s duty and field uniform.
The Army said that the uniform — coming at no extra cost to taxpayers and will be made in the USA — will be cost-neutral for enlisted soldiers, and that female soldiers will have the option to wear versions with a skirt or pants.
The new uniform will be available by the summer of 2020.
All soldiers must be wearing it by 2028.
