The United States Space Force is the newest branch of the armed forces. On Friday, they posted a picture of a uniform to show off the nametape and patches. Notice anything strange about the uniform? Plenty of Twitter users did. The woodland camouflage just seems a little unnecessary for troops who will be working on, and operating in, space. The jokes and questions rolled in so hard and fast that the USSF had to issue a clarification.
USSF is utilizing current Army/Air Force uniforms, saving costs of designing/producing a new one.
Members will look like their joint counterparts they’ll be working with, on the ground.
That didn't stop others from making design suggestions. Redditor Annoyed_Scientist "fixed" the uniform with a more appropriate camouflage.
The space camouflage presents its own problems. What if a soldier, er, space cadet was lost? We'd never find them.
