I think, since 1980, I have worn at least 8 different field uniforms, not including some Alaska and Fort Drum unique uniforms I had, nor the Tanker's Uniform.... (1) Green Fatigues, (2) BDUs (from Elvis to end), (3) Jungle Fatigues (Vietnam Era), (4) Chocolate Chip DBDUs, (5) 3 color DBDUs, (6) ACU-UCP, (7) Multi-cams, (8) ACU-OCP... How about you?

I've worn uniforms for three different branches of service; couldn't count the number of different uniforms over the past 37+ years. Plan on keeping only one when I retire from AD this summer, my last service dress uniform.

1980-2000 USMC,,, Wore 4 different types of "Cammies" . Dress uniforms went from have wool for winter and Polyester for summer to a single poly/Wool blend. Went from the old "horse blanket" over coat and rain coat to a single All weather coat, Had the Wooly-pully sweater and tanker jacket.
I got confused even with those few changes. As soon as we got off Id just go in my room and strip buck naked and watch TV. Too many decisions.
