    We are on lunch and have to be back at the company at 1300 in PTs to get fitted for ACUs. The funny thing is we deploy in about 2 months and still dont know if we are wearing DCUs or ACUs.

    You will probably wear the ACU's. All the units coming over to iraq are showing up in ACU's now. Where are you going? We have some 3ID attached to us. A 3/15 Mech. Helps us LI guys out :)

    Well, we got fitted. But our commander is trying to get us to go in DCUs so we can come back and have the brand new ACUs to wear. He doesnt want us to go over there and tear up the ACUs, because it will be almost impossible to DX them when we get back. I guess we will find out when get actually get the ACUs here in a few weeks. If they make us turn our DCUs in for the ACUs, we are going in ACUs; otherwise we are wearind DCUs.

    "Fitted" for ACUs? They don't do classic Med/Regular sizes no more? Do they have to fit you properly or something?

    Do you guys get four sets for free? or do you have to pay for some. Big rumor here is that when we get back to Stewart, we'll have to pay for every set of ACUs ourselves!! :hs:



    MORE then likely, you should be wearing ACUs by the time you get over here. Like others have said, 3ID is the only division here thats still sporting the DCUs. :wiggle:

    DCUs are the hotness. I dread the day SGM Jordan makes us get those silly "I wish I was a marine" uniform. Err, uhh... ACUs... thats right
