U.S. Navy Seabees Camo Evolution

If this photo was a bride, she would have everything she needed for the traditional something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. While, the woodland pattern may be counted for double points. This is a great transitional shot of the U.S. Navy's camouflage patterns as they move out of the old woodland cammies to the digitized NWU. This particular shot shows Seabees donning their current Working Uniforms. 

NAVFAC Hawaii still hasn't dropped the Camouflage Utility Uniform as they wait for the new NWU to finally be issued to them. Most sailors will still wear the NWU I with the blue pattern, while the new NWUIII with AOR 2 Camouflage at the far left will be worn by those within Naval Expeditionary Combat Command. But wait, there's more with DCU still being used along with the NWUII in AOR 1 camouflage for Naval Special Warfare, rounding out at least five patterns now issued within the Navy.

  1. Wow! A post with seabees! And I know all three of them. We did tree testing for the blue ones when they came out. They didn't fare so well during the field exercises.
