Trainees with 2nd Battalion, 13th Infantry Regiment were fitted for their Army Green Service Uniform on Oct. 18 at the 120th Adjutant General Battalion (Reception). The trainees are the first on Fort Jackson to receive their Army Greens.
The uniform, which is a throwback to those worn by the ‘greatest generation’ of Soldiers during World War II, has been rolling out throughout 2021.
Army recruiters and drill sergeants were the first to begin receiving the new uniform, because the two groups are considered the face of the Army. Fort Sill, Oklahoma, was the first training location to issue the uniform, followed by Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri and Fort Benning, Georgia.
Fort Jackson, the Army’s largest Initial Entry Training center, is the last facility to issue AGSUs to trainees.
