Video History of US Army Uniforms

    While not capturing every uniform that the United States has fielded, Business Insider has an excellent video showcasing the major uniforms of the US Army in less than two minutes. Its a fascinating watch, especially for gear-do’s like myself.

    In that respect, its amazing to see how quickly and simultaneously slowly the uniform, weapon, and more specifically, the gear changes over time. It takes nearly a hundred years to go from a simple belt to the MOLLE we field today (and amazingly, we are going back to belts albeit in MOLLE form).
