Soldiers in the U.S. Army have gotten a new combat uniform that will be worn by those who return from Afghanistan.
The Army Uniform Board voted Thursday to start producing the new Army Combat Uniform, a uniform that is designed for soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq, the Associated Press reports.
The board’s vote was a rare affirmation that combat-ready soldiers are needed for a more modern combat service.
The board had earlier recommended that the uniform be designed for troops who will be deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, but that the Army continue to produce the uniform in the colors that will appear on the battlefield.
The new uniform, which was created by the Army, will be available in two sizes: medium and large, which are available in a wide variety of colors.
It also includes a new visor, which will be offered in the Army’s signature green and white colors.
“As the nation moves to more modernized combat roles and equipment, there is a need for a uniform to ensure the readiness of our troops and the soldiers of the future,” Army Secretary Linda Hunt said in a statement.
The uniform is being produced in the United States.
The military began production of the uniform back in 2015.
It is the latest piece of the Pentagon’s effort to create a uniform for troops in the field, which the department has long been trying to do.
The military has a long history of producing uniform uniforms, dating back to World War II.
In the 1990s, the Pentagon began producing uniforms for the United Nations and other organizations that are intended to be worn in war zones.
But many countries and other international organizations have yet to embrace the idea of creating uniforms that are suitable for all.
