New in 2024: Marines’ camouflage uniform shortage to get fixed


Marines finally will see fully stocked shelves of camouflage uniforms in summer 2024. That’s when the shortage of the Marine Corps combat utility uniform, the everyday outfit colloquially known as cammies, is set to be resolved, according to Marine spokesman Maj. John Parry.

In September 2023, the Corps loosened its uniform rules, authorizing unit leaders to allow desert-colored cammies or flame-resistant organizational gear in place of the standard woodland-colored cammies. “What we cannot have is a situation where a Marine is wearing unserviceable cammies, because that looks bad for the Corps, and we can’t have a situation where that Marine is being given a hard time about those unserviceable cammies,” Commandant Gen. Eric Smith said.
