Army Cadet with Saber

Army Cadet with Saber, originally uploaded by Eclipse Pics (∆ncient).

From the 2009 Boston University Tri-Service ROTC Pass in Review. A BU Senior Army ROTC cadet in Class A uniform marching with a saber.

Update: November 9, 2009.  This photograph, with the copyright watermark cropped off, has been appearing on an ad on Facebook without my knowledge or consent.  If you see it, please send me a screenshot and report that ad as using copyrighted material without the owner’s consent.

Update: November 16, 2009. I heard from Facebook, and they claim to have pulled the ad with my photograph, but won’t give me any data on the company that was using it without my consent.  I’m glad that the ad was pulled but, Facebook could have handled this better.

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.
