My fear is that sailors wanted cammo outfits too in order to LOOK as “military” and “warrior-like” as marines, soldiers, et al… That’s completely childish, as so many things nowadays. As the article above states, sailors don’t need camouflage!! They serve in industrial facilities (btw: a ship is one, a base is one) and what they would need would simply be worker’s outfits. Oh! And I might add, being a foreigner, that the old outfits of US sailors made us dream all around the world during so many decades, whether in reality or on the silver screen, worn by Gene Kelly and the likes… Why are you Americans now ashamed of these beautiful and handsome pieces of uniforms????
