Navy/Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Stacy M. Atkins Ricks
If you Google “In The Navy,” after you scroll through some other stuff, you'll strike a few hits on the Navy’s unlucky history with uniforms. Most recently, in 2010, the Navy forced sailors to wear a short-lived blue camouflage uniform that was derisively dubbed “blueberries” or “aquaflage.” Now, the service is trying to avoid the pitfalls of the past as it tests three new prototypes for a new two-piece working uniform.

The Navy is finally bidding adieu to the horrible blue Navy working uniform. As sailors across the globe rejoice that they can hang up their aquaflage forever, the service has selected digital Woodland pattern camouflage as the Navy's new working uniform.
