This article presents the author's comments about naval uniforms in the U.S. The author says that he has seen the U.S. Navy's experimental blue and gray cammie variants being worn by staff at the Great Lakes Recruit Training Center. He says that the development of a redundant and costly Navy garment should be discontinued and instead the new cammies worn by the members of the U.S. Marine Corps should be used by the Navy. He says that the U.S. Navy should implement Service Dress Khaki in such a way that there is a Class B version to replace the current working and general-purpose khakis.
