I never thought that they would change the uniforms as much as they have while Gunner has been active duty.
Of course I never thought he would see a war, or that he would deploy as much as he had. I guess I lived in denial?
First deployment to Iraq.....BDU's. He was so young!
The second deployment it was DCU's. (This picture was from the first deployment when they could wear both uniforms) I still think that they are kind of pink.
Then there was the third deployment to Iraq. ACU's. I like them better than the DCU's, but not as much as BDU's.
This picture was from his homecoming from the third deployment. So much for getting a nice picture of the two of us with crazy kids like this!
In keeping with the Army's tradition of changing the uniform every time Gunner deploys, they have come out with the FRCU's. As if our house didn't have enough abandoned uniforms littering the basement, we'll be able to add to the collection. All of Gunner's uniforms and TA50 fit in the front closet of our one bedroom apartment when we got married, not anymore!
Oh, and just for the record Army, I miss my husband shining his boots every morning. Can you go back to the old boots?
