Army Uniform change : The Army announced earlier this week that the patrol cap will replace the black wool beret

On Monday, June 20, the Sergeant Major of the Army, Raymond F. Chandler III participated in his first bloggers roundtable to discuss and take questions about the recently announced changes to the Army uniform. The Army announced earlier this week that the patrol cap will replace the black wool beret as the default headgear for the Army combat uniform. Also changing are the options for how soldiers can attach certain items to their ACU shirts. Soldiers will soon be able to sew on name tapes, service tapes, rank insignia and skill badges, instead of using Velcro.
