    Excellent! I've seen a handful of airmen wear them on base around here. I think it is an excellent change. Their current uniform looks really ugly imo. I now have another reason to cross commission when the opportunity presents itself.

    Having spent 20 years as a USAF officer I can tell you they they were always looking for ways to redefine themselves instead of embracing their Army Air Corps heritage. Glad my daughter went USNA.

    Security forces at the AFB on which I work are already wearing them...joked with one this morning, they said, "they are for special people only, and they were special." They like them.

    Multicam is actually a decent camo, unlike the office battle uniform.
    DoD should go with common camo patterns. Combat is no place to look distinctive.
