welcome to an all-new video I'm US Army

veteran Christopher Cass and in this

video we're gonna be talking about this

memoranda the United States Army has put

out that outlines some you know good

details about the army green uniform the

army green service uniform that pinks

and greens however you know them as

we're gonna be talking about some of the

things that are outlined in this

memorandum as far as timelines and when

you're gonna get them all that kind of

Awesome amazing stuff so if you are

interested to learn about the United

States Army maybe to join or just to

fill some curiosity and you're not yet

subscribed to this channel I think I

click on a subscribe button also click

on the bell to get alerts as soon as new

videos go alive

to include the live streams that become

a part of that awesome notification

platoon so let's dive in as memorandum

let's talk about what is inside of this

and what maybe you want to know about


if you're not familiar what the heck the

pinks and greens are and all that kind

of stuff like that I won't bore you with

long lengthy in-depth kind of thing

about it I've done some videos on that

you guys seen some stuff you can find

some stuff on it it's just a new style

uniform that they're gonna add to you

know to maybe make it to where soldiers

wear like a daily uniform right so we

don't always want the camouflage uniform

and they're kind of bringing back some

old-school stuff right so I'm not gonna

dive too deep into it check out my

channel check out other resources to

learn more about the things in Green's

and the army green service uniform if

you need to otherwise we're just gonna

move forward with when to this stuff

starts game implementing what's inside

just memo and all that kind of stuff

now the memo that I currently have is

just a screen capture from someone that

posted a screenshot of the memorandum

that they received in like this army

community area online so it's not the

greatest quality possibly by now there's

a better quality out there in a PDF

format that the Army's officially

released there's nothing about this that

secret it's not like this was you know

somehow leaked information anything like

that it's just the army hasn't

officially put it out to the public even

though it is for public release because

at the memorandum it has already says

for distribution so it just officially

has come out as I'm making this video so

I'm working off the screen capture but

it looks like this memory round came out

on this

kind of June so it's really new and

we'll kind of detail all the things that

are inside of it now not every single

thing because a lot of the stuff inside

of here is things like how far below the

shoulder does the unit patch you need to

be sewn on on the green uniform you

don't care about that kind of stuff

right if you do then you're probably the

very few of you that do care about that

you probably care about things like when

can I start wearing them when I'm gonna

get them that's we're gonna kind of

outline inside of this video so let's

answer the first possible question you

may have which is when can I wear the

army green uniform

officially the AGS you the army green

service uniform well if you have one

you're actually authorized to wear it

now you're currently authorized to wear

it the army says that it is authorized

to wear but that doesn't mean you can

just show up tomorrow and be like hey

the army said I can wear it so I'm gonna

feel up to work tomorrow

we're an army green sea versus uniform

again assuming you have one because is

how it's gonna still work yes the Army

has officially announced that yes if you

have one you're authorized to wear it

but then it kind of still has to trickle

down to the unit's the units now have to

authorize soldiers to wear them so now

your unit has to say you know yes you

guys can wear these on select days

whatever days for certain purposes

whatever the case might be because you

can't just show up and wear this stuff

usually the uniform is all about

uniformity right so especially like

things like you know if if it's cold out

and if one person is wearing their

gore-tex jacket then everybody needs to

be more in the gore-tex jacket for

formation right outside information that

you don't care so there's gonna still

come down to the unit level as far as

when you can start wearing it and all

that kind of stuff and if you have it

then it might be a thing yes if you guys

have it then on Friday for this class if

you want to wear it then you can wear it

so it okay still kind of you know

trickle down to the unit level and as

far as who even has them anyways now

your next question might be well when

can I purchase the army green service

uniform if I would like to purchase one

now the memorandum outlines that third

quarter fiscal year of 2020 so that

third quarter is from April 1st of 2020

to June 30th of 2020 so that means

either they're currently in stores or

they're going to be very soon as third

quarters about to run out the 30th of

June so it is possible that maybe it's

already available in your local store at

your local base if you're on base if

you're in the army now if you were

someone who's not yet in the army but

wants to join the army at some point in

time and you want to know well when

I get issued the army green service

uniform well a memorandum states that

it'll be issued in the fourth quarter of

2020 fourth quarter being from July 1st

of 2020 to the 30th of September of 2020

so possibly if you're gonna go in

through basic training or AIT during

that timeframe you might get issued it

then if you obviously come in after that

timeframe then you should be definitely

getting issued the army green service

uniform according to that memorandum and

then for those of you that are maybe

currently in the army don't have the

army green service uniform or whatever

the case might be and you want to know

well when do I have to have one by when

is it going to be mandatory that I have

a army green service uniform well the

official mandatory date is going to be

one October of 2027 now you may not even

be in the army at that point anymore you

may have already gotten out depending on

what your kind of goals are for how long

you want to stay in the army but by 1

October 2027 you must own a set of army

green service uniforms so that gives you

plenty of time to save up or even get

out of the army I guess if you don't

want to wear it right before is

mandatory that you must own a set of

army green service uniforms and I guess

I said plural but it's usually just one

set right the jacket the pants the full

set right you just have to have one pair

of that now also with that time line as

far as the mandatory dated you must have

it acronyms start changing all right so

all the way up until October 1st of 2027

it'll still be known as the army green

service uniform or a GS u and then the

blue uniform which is the more formal

one will still be known as the Army's

service uniform of the asu's but one

becomes mandatory on October 1st of 2027

it will change acronyms so the army

green service uniform will then switch

to the ASU or the Army's service uniform

and the Blues will then switch to the a

B you for the army blue uniform so get

ready for some acronym changes in 2027 I

guess now for those of you that are not

aware right if you don't get issued the

army green uniforms right you are not

issued those and you're upset that

you're enough to purchase these out of

pocket well the army actually pays you

to resupply on uniforms you get a

clothing allowance every year on your

anniversary whatever pay day it falls on

or whatever the nose Nick's closest pay

day to that anniversary you're gonna

receive a clothing allowance is supposed

to be utilized for buying new uniforms

replacing your

service uniform or your camouflage

uniform or some boots or whatever the

case might be your first one is usually

pretty small but you're not gonna have

to worry about that right if you're

probably right now only in less than a

year in the army or whatever the case is

you need to buy one you know you're not

required to buy one unless your unit for

some whatever reason wants to make it

mandatory but by army regulations not

mandatory until 2027 so you have some

time to kind of say that Plus as you get

further along in your army career each

year it starts to kind of increase for

your clothing allowance you receive more

and more because you're probably wearing

out more uniforms so you can always save

a little bit here a little bit of there

or even as you've progressed a little

bit further and the army may have been

in for four years or whatever your

clothing allowance may be enough to be

able to buy a army service uniform the

army green service uniform and actually

a lot of soldiers don't even use that

extra clothing allowance to buy extra

uniforms that you just use it for an

extra paycheck or an extra party funds

or whatever the case is but technically

that's what it's supposed be for now

going through a few more details as far

as like the uniform a lot of people want

to know you know they're still going to

be a short sleeve version of jacket

version there is so there is still in

this list of the items for the green

uniform it does have a short sleeve

shirt and it talks about the variation

as far as how to wear it are we going to

add so there is still like a Class A and

Class B style uniform to it we're one

version where is the full-on jacket and

everything like that and another version

doesn't include the jacket just has the

button-up shirt with the short sleeves a

lot of people have also been kind of

curious about the headgear you've seen

some photos with a couple different

versions of the headgear one with the

garrison cap and one with like the

old-school type of some people call it

the bus driver cap or whatever but on

this list I only see one version of the

headgear in here even though I've seen

photos from some of the testing or

whatever of them wearing the bus driver

type of style hat but on the little list

anyways and actually list it with that

garrison cap officially the heritage

green 5 6 Ford garrison cap does still

have things like the neck tie you still

have the dress socks you have a leather

gloves for certain occasions and one of

the cool things that I like this listed

on here is an optional option that you

can add to the uniform that has

authorized is the bomber jacket actually

have a few kind of cold-weather options

you have the heritage green windbreaker

heritage green sweaters you have a

maternity diversion there's also a

heritage green cold-weather cap you have

a heritage green Eisenhower jacket worn

like the a GSU coat and then you also

and then like I said the the bomber

jacket and which is leather there are a

few different kind of cold-weather

options that you know might be pretty

cool especially if you want to rock the

old school leather bomber jacket you can

also utilize an umbrella while wearing

this uniform some of you old school

veterans may remember back in the day

you know only females rely to carry

umbrellas they at some point changed

that to where men and women when only in

the army service uniform could carry an

umbrella a lot of people still don't but

in this one it still does outlined that

it is authorized while wearing the army

green service uniform that you can

utilize an umbrella just not in

formation also if for whatever reason

there's some senior NCOs watching this

video and you're curious about da photos

well it actually states that all the way

up until the 30th of September 2027

you can make a choice either wear the

blue uniform or the green uniform when

taking a DEA photo for those of you the

not familiar with the purpose of a DEA

photo I won't get it out in this video

maybe some other time or something but

it's usually only a higher-ranking

individuals they have to do those kind

of things now just as a quick thing for

anybody who may not be familiar with the

army green uniform or may have some

confusion about the purpose of it right

it is not intended to replace the Blues

the Blues are just gonna be simply a

more formal thing that is only for

formal events maybe the board maybe a

ball maybe you know certain other things

were they need a formal uniform to wear

the greens are intended for select

individuals select moments to be a daily

wear uniform so if the situation does

not call for them to wear the camouflage

uniform maybe they're gonna be in class

maybe they're gonna be in school maybe

they're gonna be in the office or

whatever then they would wear the green

uniform and be a little bit more like a

business suit almost in a way more a

little bit more professional kind of

attire individuals that are mean you

know working in the motor pool doing

some kind of training or doing something

that may get them dirty or have to do a

lot of physical activity they wouldn't

be wearing that in that specific day

they'd be wearing the camouflage uniform

for those purposes now often will this

get utilized I will have to wait and see

you know I I can see certain MLS has

certain kind of you know individuals

wearing it quite often go people to work

inside pack for the pack clerks

or the people inside of like s1 s2 those

kind of things people in legal certain

other individuals that work in an office

type of environment and then everybody

else it might be a situation where hey

on Friday we've got this class coming up

so the uniform for that class is going

to be the army green service uniform for

that class so we'll see how it kind of

gets mixed into there and how often

soldiers end up actually wearing the

uniform but this memorandum now kind of

officially outlines the timeline the

dates as far as when you're gonna get

them when you need to have them by and

if you have your things inside they're

either the memorandums already out for

you guys to check out or make them out

soon hopefully probably I mean a better

version I won't share the version that I

have it's kind of a little bit grainy a

little bit blurry but it doesn't lie a

lot of other things if you really want

to know the full list of everything that

is required with uniform the exact

measurements as far as how the unit

patches go what you can have on the

uniform what you can't have on uniform

all those kind of things are outlined in

that memorandum what are your thoughts

be issued all that kind of stuff maybe
