The Army Uniform: Wearing Traditions


For over 200 years, the uniform of a U.S. Army Soldier symbolizes strength and a tradition that spans from the Civil War to present day. While newly enlisted Soldiers learn mostly about their uniform by listening to the folklore passed on by their seniors, the true significance of each uniform has its roots in the books of historians and museum curators.
