Not Quite Dad’s Army Boots


Brown Boot Army

Brown Boot Army

Back when my dad enlisted, the US Army was a “Brown Boot Army.” The uniform was shortly changed to Black Boots and stay that way for a fist full of decades.


Now the Army Combat Uniform (replacing the BDU) calls for brown boots. What was old is new again.
