From the WaPo article today, here, on the cammie revolution and its affiliated wastefull spending:
The Navy spent more than $435,000 on three new designs. One was a blue-and-gray pattern, to be worn aboard ships. Pattern No. 8.
Sailors worried that it would hide them at the one time they would want to be found.
“You fall in the damn water and you’re wearing water-colored camouflage. What the hell is that?” said one active-duty petty officer. . . . “It’s not logical. It’s not logical at all to have water-colored uniforms.”
I am anointing the Navy cammies “MOCs,” Man Overboard Camouflage, though I am sure somebody’s probably already come up with another funnier acronym. H/t GGH
