SMA: Soldiers may be wearing fewer awards and decorations on the Army Greens

Personally, I think participation awards should disappear.

I also just noticed SMA Dan is wearing a Ranger shoulder tab, rather than the badge?
Did he get the 5-sided out-house designated as an LLRP Bn??

So they are going retro to the WW II uniform but have to check out boots?

I'm sure Corcoran is going to be surprised that they will be looking at prototypes..

When I was in the Navy, working uniforms (working whites & Johnny Cash) were routinely worn with only the three (3) highest awards and a maximum of two (2) qualification pins. Personally, when I retired my rack looked like a N. Korean general's but the overwhelming number were campaign / "I was there" awards not actual "I did something above and beyond" awards.

Tabs are back on the shoulder on the new uniform.

I have not seen a single image of the proposed "Pink & Green" uniform where the soldier is wearing a green beret.

The Army greens looked sharp with the green beret, but the ASU (blues) with a green beret look like a mashup that no one thought through.

I'm just glad to see Army brass is finally taking on the really tough issues and changing the uniform again.
