The new US Space Force uniform is...

Woodland camo? Wait, what!? The jokes just write themselves. Social media is going crazy on this.

My favorite comment so far..."In space, no-one can hear you be ridiculous."





"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

At least they used something off the rack instead of customed tailored.

Well, they're all going to be ground lubbers for now. When we get them on real space ships (and have a Space Academy to train them*), they can have their own uniforms.

It's fine... for Avatar.
Gold red and blue will draw StarTrek "outrage" so those colors are out.

You certainly canNOT rule out red and blue. WE, as a country, are all about red, white and blue! A TRUE star Trek fan would love the colors!!!!

But who wants to be in the space force as a red shirt?

The solution is obvious and practical:




San Antonio, TX (in the old city)


"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

It'll come in handy on Mars (only leave out the green stuff).

The uniform is quite appropriate because they’ll spend more time in Afghanistan than in space.

Do you want cammo so you can hide against a star background or do you want to blend in against the gauges and controls on the bridge...

I think the idea behind the camo is to blend in as much as possible at the cafeteria and commissary to avoid the ragging/hazing.

The photo shows they went with blue lettering...any camo would be the Air Force's current pattern:

transitioning to OCP (Army's camo pattern) by spring of next year:

Engineroom and machinery spaces probably require coveralls, not camo NWUs.

The camo uniforms would be too bulky for those spaces.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

So that camo would be useful where shipboard?

(Mind you we're talking about the camouflage pattern, not the weight of the material.)

My first job in the Air Force was maintaining navigational aids such as the instrument landing system.

The FAA mandates that all shelters and antenna systems of such equipment be painted red and white.

Back in the late 70's, someone in the AF decided that this stuff just had to be painted subdued green like other military gear.

Bear in mind that these radio systems are designed to provide navigational information to aircraft. I'm not quite sure how you can hide something like this from an anti-radiation missile by painting it Army green.

Even if you shut the transmitters down, there's only one possible location for either the localizer or glideslope antenna arrays, so they're still an easy target.

Cooler heads prevailed, and the stuff stayed red and white...

It's just like every other BDU, for the other four services. The colors and patterns vary a little bit, but it's the same thing the vast majority of uniformed personnel across DOD wear to work every day. The freak out over this is stupid.
