Wear-out date set for BDUs.

Wear-out Date Set for BDUs--The Army's Deputy Chief of Staff for G-1 (Personnel) announced that the final wear-out date for the Army Battle Dress Uniform and Desert Battle Dress Uniform will be April 30 for both active-duty and reserve-component Soldiers.

The Army began phasing out the woodland and desert-pattered uniforms on June 14, 2004, with debut of the digital-patterned Army Combat Uniform.

All brown T-shirts, black combat boots and green and black jungle boots, woodland and desert-camouflage caps, olive-drabgreen name and U.S. Army tapes, subdued-olive-green shoulder-sleeve insignias and the black rigger belt and web belt with open-faced black buckle will also become obsolete on April 30.
