More army combat uniforms.

Pages 46 and 47 of PS 644 (July 2006) gave you some tips for identifying an authentic Army combat uniform (ACU). The article says a tag on the ACU shows a government contract number. It goes on to say valid contract numbers start either with the letters SPO or with the letters and numbers W911QY.

Since the article was published, AAFES has secured its own contract for ACUs. These ACUs have a tag with a contract number that begins with SPM. These are authorized and authentic uniforms, just like those with numbers that begin with SPO. You can purchase them with confidence.

Keep in mind, AAFES may secure future ACU contracts, and other contract numbers may appear on the uniform. The point is, if you purchase ACUs through AAFES, you can be sure they're authentic.
