Army uniform board to consider bringing back iconic 'pinks and greens' uniform 

What's old is new again as Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey pushes ahead on bringing back a vintage uniform.

The Army's top enlisted soldier is heading to the next uniform board meeting, armed with the results of an exclusive Army Times survey, to make the case for bringing back an iconic, World War II era uniform for everyday business wear, he told Army Times in an interview this week.

"That was the uniform of the 'Greatest Generation.' There was a lot of prestige and honor associated with that. The American public identified with that uniform," he said. "We think that is more appropriate than trying to create something new."
