ARMY’S ‘PINKS AND GREENS’ COULD MAKE A COMEBACK


Army leaders are considering bringing back a World War II-era uniform. The iconic “pinks and greens,”


worn decades ago, served as the inspiration for a new prototype soldiers modeled on Capitol Hill and other locations this fall. Sgt. Maj. of the Army Dan Dailey said the uniforms represent a time “when America became the un- disputed, most powerful nation on Earth — universally loved [and] revered by the American public.” The uniform board will consider


a belted version of the uniform this spring, Dailey told Army Times. Most soldiers support the change to the vintage olive uniform, according to a poll done by the newspaper.


The uniform could replace the


Army’s blue service uniform at official events.


INCOMING SAILORS MUST PASS NEW RUN TEST


Men and women shipping off to Navy boot camp must first pass a 1.5-mile timed run, the top officer at Naval Service Training Com- mand announced. “The initial run standard raises the bar … helping us develop tough, more qualified sailors during basic military training,” Rear Adm. Mike Bernacchi said in a release announcing the change. Male recruits need to complete the run within 16 minutes and 10 seconds. Female recruits need to finish it in 18 minutes, 7 seconds. Those who fail can retest within 48 hours.
