As far as what uniforms were worn on "D"Day, the answer is not complete and there are several errors; First of all, the boots worn by the U.S. Army were brown, not black. They came in three styles, Service boots with leggings, two buckle boots and the Airborne Jump boots. Further, the uniforms were a mixture of the 1941 uniform and the 1943 uniform, the difference being the jacket. The paratroopers had their own unique uniform consisting of a jacket with "Rigger" pouches, some reenforced, some as issued. The paratrooper helmet was unique also as it had a liner connected to the helmet with special webbing so the helmet and liner would not separate during the jump.

Q: What did the Army wear in WW2?AnswerSoldiers were issued uniforms, boots, helmets and equipment and their weapons when they went to war. Each country had their own design and color of uniforms. And within an Army such as US, there were many types of uniforms for different branches of service(Army, navy, Marines) as well as different types of climates. Uniforms could vary based upon the purpose of the soldier. Example a Paratrooper would wear a different uniform than an infantryman or an airman.Why a uniform?Uniforms were issued because it was cheaper to mass produce them. And every soldier had to have something to wear that would identify him as a friend. Having common clothes and equipment made it easier to supply replacement items.

What kind of uniforms did nurses wear in Vietnam?

The US Army females were part of the US Army WACs (Women Army Corps); as depicted in the TV and film MASH. They were issued WAC uniforms. In Vietnam, they appeared to be the same OG (Olive Green) fatigues as worn by the men, but were obviously tailored for females. Many, if not most, of the US Military females in country appeared to be officers. The one distinguishing feature about their uniforms was (unless they got them from other than US supply) they all seemed to have epaulets on their fatique shirt (called a jacket in the army). US GI jungle fatiques didn't have epaulets on their shoulders. All US jungle fatiques were OG cotten rip stop material.

Why do students wear uniforms in schools?

They wear uniforms because they are told to do so, and because their parents and others are not protesting.

But we shouldn't have to wear uniforms because they describe us and show our personality. Students will always point out each others' flaws, no matter what; uniforms don't do anything.
