New Blog Template! Check it Out!

What does everyone think?  I thought it was time for some ACU (Army Combat Uniform) background.  I tried the multi-cam but it didn't look as "cool" (to quote a US general) as the ACU.

Don't even get me started on this stuff - I will say though, it was one of the happiest days of my life in the Army when we finally got issued ours, 3 weeks before going home.  People stopped asking me "which national guard unit are you in?" because I wore the old Desert Combat Uniform as opposed to the ACU.

Not much painting being done as it's a working weekend but expect some results on Monday!  I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

For some background, here is a link on the interesting history of the ACU.

  2. I normally read the blog in my RSS reader, so don't see the theme.

    I took a look in my browser, though, and it looks very cool.

    1. Thanks for commenting, Russel! Glad you like the new look. I too use an RSS reader so normally it's just a while background.

    1. Paul,
      In a word? TERRIBLE. My last assignment in Iraq I went up in helicopters all the time with my boss.
      Unfortunately you could see GIs moving around against the dirt and foliage on the ground for a great distance. the Multi-Cam was a great improvement.
