    Excellent. The Blues are so cleaner looking and quite a bit more classy IMHO.

    I don't know how much truth there is in this, but I remember hearing that the reason for the two shades of blue in the Army Blues uniform is that during the late 1800's, when soldiers would ride out West for years at a time... they would wear the pants, but stow the coat while they rode. The pants would weather to a lighter color while the coat remained dark blue. Just an interesting tidbit I think...

    We've not much longer here to stay,
    For in a month or two,
    We'll bid farewell to Cay-det Gray,
    And don the Army Blue.

    Army Blue, Army Blue,
    Hoorah for the Army Blue,
    We'll bid farewell to Cay-det Gray,
    And don the Army Blue.

    Dude. It has a bow-tie. ( Irony++. My Rothbard avatar has one too. But he's an economist, he's supposed to look like a doofus) It just looks goofy compared to the marine uniform.

    They should have just hired Hugo Boss to design a uniform. Everyone knows the Nazis SS had the coolest uniforms ever.

    Gotta admit, I have always been envious of the Marine dress blue alphas. Now that the Army is moving to the dress blues, they wont look quite so shabby beside a Marine.
