STOP–Hear Me SMA Dailey–STOP

I came across this article today, I hope that it is a fanciful flight of fancy by Army Time, somehow I don’t think so.

As an old retired soldier, SMA Dailey stop with the constant uniform changes.  Let the uniform be.  The Army Service Uniform is tradition going back to the revolutionary war.  I love Pinks and Greens, in fact it should have been chosen the last time we got a new uniform.  We have had the Army in a constant uniform churn for the last 15 or 20 years.  Let it go.  I know you have a great survey by the soldiers, but let’s take it a step further–how much is this going to cost soldiers and how much is it going to cost the Army?  I am sure that was not one of the questions from Army Times.

I note that you compliment the USMC about their uniforms.  Well one reason the USMC does so well with their uniforms is they don’t change them every time the Good Idea Fairy flits in and overtakes someone in authority’s alligator brain.

So let me state it once again–STOP the Nonesense.

    It is spring, and an idle Sergeant Major’s thoughts soon turn to ways of having a legacy by turning his soldiers into flower gardens, awash with colors and textures and designs such that, 100 years from now, historians will know who SMA Dailey was.
