From StrategyPage ‘s Steve Cole:

Fort Riley, Kansas, home to two heavy mechanized brigades, has repainted all of its equipment in desert tan, although the troops remain in European woodland (green). Several National Guard units coming to Riley for training all showed up in desert cammo. The New Hampshire National Guard was just issued new trucks in desert colors with orders not to repaint them.

It’s easier to change clothes than to change paint. And I somehow doubt we’ll hear when new BDUs are issued — on board a ship or transport plane somewhere far, far from Kansas.
