WASHINGTON (Sept. 20, 2012) -- Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler III is encouraging all active-duty, Reserve and National Guard Soldiers to take the Army Service Uniform survey to help inform the Army's decisions regarding future uniforms and equipment.

The survey runs from Sept. 17 to Oct. 12, and is currently available online through AKO.

To date more than 4,200 Soldiers have taken the survey.

Chandler said the Army needs continued support from Soldiers and leaders at all levels to ensure the Army gets maximum participation in the survey. He said the ASU survey is part of the Army's effort to solicit continuous feedback on the equipment it provides to Soldiers -- active duty, National Guard, and Reserve.
