Navy Says Goodbye to the 'Blueberry' Camouflage Uniform


MANAMA, Bahrain -- Sailors' last day to wear a blue camouflage uniform beloved by some and derided by others is here.

The Type I Navy Working Uniform, dubbed the "blueberry," will no longer be authorized for wear as of Tuesday, according to a timeline sent out by the Navy three years ago.

The eight-point cap is also being updated with the anchor, USS Constitution and eagle emblem stitched into the front-center panel, where sailors were previously allowed to put rank insignia.

Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

What a dump truck load of crap. Now they will look like uni-military instead. Another change for the sake of change. If they wait long enough it'll be back to dungarees and blue shirt with the dixie cup.
