Triumph

NWUtypeIIn a momentous show of sanity, Navy leadership has decided to ditch the Navy Working Uniform, Type I – affectionately known as “blueberries” by the current generation of Sailors. It is not worth rehashing the full story of this uniform (the Navy Times can do that for you) – suffice it to say, all the services developed so many battle dress-style uniforms over the past 15 years that a year or two ago Congress mandated (quite justifiably) that they cut back. Over the next three years, we in the Navy will transition from the Type I to the Type III. Or in other words, from blue to green:

Besides being appreciated by hundreds of thousands of Sailors, this change also has interesting ramifications for the San Diego Padres. Additionally, you should never read the Russian mouthpiece RT, but I did appreciate their interestingly-formulated headline on the topic.

This is at least a six-meme occasion. Huzzah!
