I was on a seabee base in Mississippi and there were about 6 different camouflage utilities. The Navy had a blue and green pair. The Marines had a green and brown pair. The air force had their own pattern and then there was the Army pattern.
When I was in the Corps in the 80's every branch wore the same one. The head gear differed though.

Blue camo is an oxymoron.
Green side or brown side out?

Can we please get them to put shirttails on them and then have them be tucked into the pants? To me, the modern soldier and the officers look like they are wearing leisure suits or casual “play clothes. “
I know that sounds disrespectful, but except for the Navy’s dress white sailor suits ( sorry I don’t know the term—are they still around?), I think a man in uniform should look sharp, and show off his waist line, which is trim, so that he has that classic masculine “V” shape, and not like he is trying to tent over his gut.

Yep. The good old BDU (Battle Dress Uniform). We doggies had a fancy (read: idiotic) way of rolling our sleeves up. You Marines rolled yours up in a "let's dispense with that fancy BS and just roll the damn things up" manner. I always admired the common sense of that.
In Central America and Grenada, they let us wear jungle fatigues. I LOVED the jungle fatigues. I could hide a Volkswagen in those cargo pockets.
