Idiots In Space



That's right: The Space Force wears woodland camo uniforms. Because there are a lot of trees at their control consoles, or because there are trees in space?

This is risible at best. The Space Force, other than those who are working at a launch site, are all doing jobs that they could do dressed up like Mrs. Maisel:

Oh Gromit, shouldn't have done that. lol

Oohhh. Seems someone’s nose got out of joint over a simple, silly joke. And Mr/Ms Gromit quickly loses his/her credibility in the discussion by spewing insults directed at those that don’t agree with the ‘proper’ mindset.

C’mon, lighten up.

Ok, back to the issue at hand...

There really isn't any such thing as a 'Space Force'. The Pentagon [mostly the US Air Force] just played musical chairs with SpaceCom's existing assets and called the result Space Force. Trump is simply too fucking stupid to get that they're blowing smoke up his big fat dumb ass.

I'm certain nearly every member of this nifty new Space Force is still officially a member of the US Air Force, with a small handful from the Navy, Army and Marines.

I’m reminded of the infamous novel about war in the outer Solar System, “Up, Uranus!”

LOL...dressed up like Mrs. Maisel. My wife and I love that show and can't wait for the next season.

As someone that served in the military, that is a funny mental image, a bunch of keyboard/joystick M.O.S. nerds dressed in black, off-the-shoulder, 1960's vintage cocktail dresses.

Let’s at least credit Audrey Hepburn with that look first, eh? I especially think the cigarette holder she used with the little black dress, in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, would be a wonderful Space Force accessory.

I’m all in favor of camoflage. How ‘bout stars on a black background ??
Maybe something clever like the Navy’s Blue “Sea BUs?” Get washed overboard and never be found.

Mightn't it have had more to do with the uniforms being cheap, as in already in inventory?

JackL- Cheap to who? I paid for everything I wore, even the boot camp issue.

Long before Aquaflage, fortunately.
