    Army Combat Uniforms: Beware of Knockoffs

    Army officials are warning Soldiers against
    buying imitation Army Combat Uniforms in lieu
    of waiting for Army-approved ACUs to arrive in
    stores. AAFES military clothing sales stores are
    scheduled to get ACUs in April 2006.
    Unauthorized uniforms typically do not meet the
    Army's specifications in various ways, such as
    appearance, usability and durability. To tell if an
    ACU is authorized, Soldiers should look for two
    tags sewn into the uniform. One tag near the
    collar is printed with the size and the second tag
    located elsewhere on the uniform gives the
    government contract number identifying what
    company made the uniform, and care instructions.
    Commanders will conduct periodic inspections to
    ensure that all personnel under their command
    wear only uniforms and heraldic items produced
    by certified manufacturers and that they meet
    specifications for design and quality, in
    accordance with AR 670-01.

    if your ACU has the marine corps logo on it, you know you got the wrong one
