Uniforms Changes: Monday, September 30 was the last day for the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) with the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) pattern. On October 1, ACUs with Operational Camouflage Pattern became the Army standard. The Air Force is currently transitioning to this uniform with the mandatory wear date set for April 1. 2021. 

The Army has announced earlier this year that soldiers will begin wearing the “Army Greens” uniform as early as the summer of 2020. It is projected that the entire Army will be wearing the new service uniform by 2028. This new uniform is an adoption of the iconic World War II uniform known as “pinks and greens.”

The Air Force has not introduced its new service dress uniform. But early comments indicated it will closely mirror the Army’s new uniform, but with a belt. This new uniform, “will reflect the Air Force’s 70 year history, particularly in the service dress jacket.

Our updated website software has expanded editing capabilities on the Retiree News website. Among these changes:

– The header image on the website can now handle multiple photographs that appear in a random sequence. The header size (960 x 180 pixels) seriously limit the photographs we can use. However, we currently have no photographs of Hawaii Air Guard F-15 Eagles, C-130 Hercules, and KC-135R Stratotankers that fit the size of the header window. And there is a definite need for more Hawaii Army Guard photographs. 

– We can now fully embed certain types of videos and Twitter posts.
