Uniform color: Olive Drab

Just me, planning on eating lunch on-site.

Also, might as well ask about this as early as possible: I'm planning on running my WWII kit, which uses deep OD green HBT pants, with an OD#3 tanker jacket and a green M1 helmet The jacket is a light pea green, and if you look at it a while it's quite distinctly green, but to the untrained eye sits kind of between green and tan. It usually appears tan in photos, which throws people off. Would I be able to wear this in conjunction with everything else and maybe an arm band?
You see, my mule don't like people laughin'... He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Why don't you cut it out with them negative waves?
