I'm jumping in here with an admittedly civilian perspective, and I see this as a couple key issues. I understand wanting to look sharp (or at least decent) in something you wear every day and wanting to be able to distinguish yourself at least somewhat from the other branches of service. A lot of the discussion in the thread seems to be focused on that issue. The main issues for me are does the camo work? I don't want our guys getting shot because they are wearing ineffective camo patterns or some attempt at a universal pattern. I have read comments here that to me make perfect sense - if we are fighting in multiple environments, how can we have a universal pattern even if there are color variations? The other issue is the cost. As a taxpayer, I'm tired of gov't make work programs. Reinventing the wheel is costly and apparently not all that effective most of the time. If something works don't fix it.

@wannabearmyteen Come on! You'd look styling in the Monet-esqe pattern :) ... OK, I'm lying!
@Tango9 @LauraKinCA @Minou_Demimonde @Jake75 A privilege ... yes... but a bigger responsibility... and one that I recognized was not my forte. I do well with the one on one mentoring of my engineers but decided long ago that teaching was not my future. Good on ya!

@Tango9 @Minou_Demimonde @Jake75 Great kids... yes... great teacher... oh yeah! They won't respond to teachers they don't respect... that's very telling T. What a great ending to a semester.
@majrod @AUNITEDPEOPLE Apparently not long enough... there are still those that remember and are now able to call into question the pat admin answers!

@HugeFan There is definitely a fatalistic attitude in they way they live their lives... all out and knowing that they aren't invincible. I agree with you but still struggle with accepting the losses... that seem way too frequent... whether through action or training. They do inspire you to be better though, don't they.

@HugeFan Yep! Well said!
@HugeFan Tipping my glass to him now.
@FoCar Well said.
@MelMc Rough day all around for you Mel! You are so great with the care packages and taking care of the active troops.
@MelMc Mel, as I sit here thinking about how many really good men and women we have lost, it gets a bit overwhelming.
@bkgreenfeet My condolences to his family and all he called friend and brother in arms. I'm very sorry for their and our loss.
