How will we ever be able to fight a war and expect to have enough munitions when we have so many problems getting uniforms that the Marines don’t even have enough uniforms to wear?

Its ok because no uniforms is part of the marines new secret weapon. All the trannies will charge the enemy in their frilly scivvies causing them to vomit uncontrollably. Making them easy picking for marksmen.

Having run the CIF in Baghdad on VBC I can tell you, the Marines are ALWAYS were low/short on material/uniforms. It’s the Corps. They literally get the leftovers from the Navy, AFTER the Navy gets it’s hand in pocket, budget wise

Working in the Veterans Health Administration in the service line that provides DME for out patient services we are seeing the same thing as the fabiricator in the article is stating, lots of backing out of contracts for contract price on DME, companys not being willing to take contract extentions, or just flat out stating they can’t meet the demands at the price they arranged even accounting for future increases.

There’s something coming that will make the convid supply chain interruptions look like a blip in the dark I feel. Economic laws and political laws are going to become really apparent to people very soon, at least some of them.

The bottom line is the suggested inflation rate is nothing compared to what actual inflation is running and once that veil comes off finally and people say the .gov is lying to us or oblivious, like most of the people then we are going to be in for some spicy times.

Well, being that the USMIL now resembles a pride parade, or the 69th intersectional dildo brigade (with all proper attribution to BCE, even if he is suffering from an allergy induced case of DiFiEye right now) they don’t need uniforms. They’ll just go around with their dicks (or whatever) hanging out for all to see. Or maybe they’ll show up in drag. Are we supposed to give a damn? I bet they have plenty of those leather dog masks in the supply depot.

Sure as hell, this isn’t the military my grandfathers and great uncles fought in. it’s good they are all deceased, so they don’t have to witness this garbage.

Snark aside, this is another sign that portends very badly for the FUSA. Jester, above, is prescient in foreseeing supply chain failures that will make 2020-22 look like a chicken shit inconvenience.

Out of curiosity how many different uniform variations do they have now? If I could have three wishes for the dotmil’s budget for equipment. Cutting down on the number of uniforms would be the first one. IIRC hasn’t the Army been through three different types of uniforms in less than thirty years? With variations of each one?

    When I was in boot camp back in the 80’s, we were issued:
    Workout gear consisting of shorts, t-shirts, and tennis shoes.
    Underwear and white undershirts
    socks, both white and black
    1 set of dress blues (wool 13 button trousers and wool blouse)
    2 sets of dress whites (polyester “Cracker Jack” uniform)
    5 Navy “dixie cup” hats
    1 wool watch cap
    1 Peacoat (my favorite uniform item. I loved mine)
    i raincoat (black trench coat with liner. I liked mine)
    3 sets of “Tropical” white uniforms (white cotton uniform. nightmare. Always wrinkled, and impossible to keep clean.)
    1 white web belt
    2 sets of “Working blue” uniforms (we never wore these. They didn’t look bad, but weren’t comfortable)
    1 pair of “boondocker” boots
    5 sets of dungarees (comfortable, but ugly and usually looked like shit because they got stained all of the time)
    1 blue belt for dungarees
    Then as soon as I got to the fleet, I was also issued:
    1 foul weather coat (my second favorite uniform item)
    1 float coat (inflatable life jacket)
    5 flight deck sweaters (only worn at sea)
    1 pair of flight deck boots. (I loved these boots. Basically, they are steel toed combat boots)
    Ear and eye protection
    All in all, a couple of thousand bucks worth of uniforms. The vast majority of it was a waste of money.
    The odd part is that the Navy was embarrassed by its working uniform- dungarees. So embarrassed, in fact, that movies, recruiting videos, and TV shows never depicted sailors in dungarees. We weren’t allowed to wear them off base. It’s my understanding that they finally got rid of that god awful uniform.

I never undersood why everyone in the 2000s decided to go their own way for uniniforms. We had a couple or so decades of Battle Dress Uniroms (BDUs) which were shared though the services. (Don’t get me started on the idiocy of starching and pressing those things but whatever). The current garb is getting shared again aside from the Marines keeping the current cammies. Honestly though that’s a lot of the issues and frankly I never understood making it easy for the foes to see what type of unit was on station based off their camo pattern. I get they likely often knew before we did who was coming in (Which is another story) but perhaps having something everyone shared again is the way to go. I could be wrong though. I know the misbegottten ACU (Army Combat Uniform) that I had to wear was hated by everyone but some Generals somewhere made bank on it so hey a uniform that on the books “Jack of all trades and master of none” which also looked horrible was what was a decade plus of a debacle also was a thing. Oh, there was a short list of Army current serving and recently departed generals in line for big pay checks for the ACUs being chosen over the current pattern which was leaps and bounds field tested to be far superior to everything else.
