ABSTRACT
This article focuses on military uniforms. In 1981, the U.S. Congress chartered military clothing-sales stores so service members could get much-needed equipment more quickly and conveniently. Today, the U.S. Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) manages 192 stores for the armed forces in the U.S.. The Army chief of staff approves Army uniform changes. The Program Executive Office-Soldier tests all the materials that soldiers will wear. Specifications are written based on the tests' findings. Approved items are then passed on to the Defense Supply Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and AAFES for procurement.
