It was not just the uniform that changed.
As the military prepares to mark its 70th anniversary, the uniform has undergone a major makeover.
The Army’s green helmet is no longer an army green.
Instead, it’s now an Army age limit helmet.
It was originally designed for US forces during World War II.
The Army says it wanted to honor all service members.
But that hasn’t always been the case.
When the US joined the Vietnam War in 1975, many of the military’s soldiers had their green helmets removed and replaced with black.
Those soldiers had to wear their army age limit helmets for their protection.
In a statement to the BBC, Army chief of staff Gen. Mark Milley said that the decision to remove the green helmet from the service’s uniform was made in consultation with the public, veterans and uniformed personnel.
“For decades, we have asked the public to be mindful of how the military and its uniform is viewed and displayed in public spaces,” he said.
The decision to replace the helmet was not made lightly.
In 2014, a former officer who served as a medic in Iraq and Afghanistan, and had been diagnosed with PTSD, sued the Army for its decision to change the Army’s helmet to a green one.
The soldier had asked the Army to remove his green helmet to allow him to wear it in public, but the Army denied the request and told him that wearing a green helmet in public would compromise his medical training.
The suit was eventually dropped.
The uniform was also redesigned in 2017 to include a white helmet and a gray one to represent soldiers in the United States Army Reserves.
It is designed to represent the Army as it represents all soldiers, Milley told reporters.
“In all these ways, we were thinking about what would be most appropriate for the Army, and this was a good way to make it easier for people to understand,” he added.
The changes were unveiled in May.
The change comes as the US military continues to face an increase in suicides and shootings among its troops.
The number of troops killed in combat in 2017 was 5,091, more than double the number of the year before.
Milley has repeatedly said the US is working to improve its mental health and mental health readiness, and he said the Army would continue to do so.
