After weeks of having soldiers model the Army’s prototype of the World War II-era “pinks and greens” uniform, Sergeant Major of the Army Dan Dailey himself donned the uniform Saturday during the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia.
The Army is working on a revival of the iconic uniform, and the prototypes first made their debut on the conference floor of the annual AUSA meeting in Washington, D.C. Dailey and the prototype models have since made the rounds in the uniform, including to a reception on Capitol Hill.
Saturday was the first time Dailey had been spotted in the uniform.
Army leaders are expected to make a decision this spring on whether to bring back the uniform.
