Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey is extending until Aug. 31 a soldier survey on several proposed uniform changes — including bringing back the iconic Eisenhower jacket, gender-neutral headgear, and black socks with the PT uniform.

Check out this article from Army Times:

Army releases preliminary uniform survey results

The surprising thing to me was the small difference in range in the survey? Everything was right in there about 60/40?

So who were the people surveyed? Did they all get the memo on how they were supposed to vote?

MSG Brad Sand, I re-read the article and it indicated the people surveyed were random. The ratio is based on 12,000 replies, out of 120,000 sent. It did state the survey was sent to PVT's all the way up the ladder to senior officers.

Lets just make it all the same uniform across the board... All the whiners that want special uniforms so they can stand out need to be quiet already.

SFC (Join to see), How would you feel wearing the Eisenhower jacket? That's possibly one of the proposals.

While I enjoyed the article, It just seemed to be an oddball reason to bring back an old uniform jacket. I wouldn't purchase it. Frankly I prefer the black jacket or sweater.

SFC (Join to see), If they brought back the Eisenhower jacket , it wouldn't look right without those tall lace up boots.

I think the army needs a kilt. Let's vote on that on too.

I did not know you could vote on stuff in the army till now. I wonder if you could bring stuff up to the command staff what would you want to vote on?

Ewwww! Having Kilts might be hazardous trying to crawl under or over razor wire. (-:

If you got the balls to wear one in combat, you got extra for things like razor wire. :)
