With the adoption of the Army's Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP) uniform by airmen around the world on the horizon, the Air National Guard put out a reminder last week for Air Force personnel to keep an eye peeled for their new duds starting in October.
There's just one problem: the vaguely helpful announcement came with the least helpful photograph I've ever seen.
What?U.S. Air National Guard/Tech. Sgt. Daniel Ter Haar
First spotted by Air Force Times' J.D. Simkins, the accompanying photo features airmen rocking an assortment of mismatched camo combinations.
Sure, it's a stupid oversight, but it also sends a weird message that Simkins nails: “Join the Air Force, where every day is your very own equivalent of Hawaiian shirt Friday.”
Look, I don't know much, but if there's one thing I do know it's this: you always match, even if it's with some silly tacticool harness. If you're going to fight terrorists, you might as well look good doing it.
Tacticool, so hot right now.Task & Purpose photo illustration
