At this point why not use what another service has already established. I know there are differences between branches however in terms of uniforms, once the Air Force fully phases ABUs a soldier and an airman will look almost identical. One major thing I don’t understand is why the Air Force doesn’t put rank on headgear.

Honestly, the whole discussion around AF adopting OCP/Multicam has transformed over the years. I once heard that we would be using Army ACUs in the future. Basically what I'm saying is that I won't believe anything until they're issued to me. When I was deployed in AFCENT, we had pretty clear instructions on how to wear OCPs. I didn't like that we were not authorized to wear the newer tees /socks but instead were forced to use the older sand tees and green socks. It's definitely a superior uniform. The ABU has been a major failure and honestly I can't get them to fit right!
