SIOUXLAND SOLDIERS SPORT NEW UNIFORMS

SIOUXLAND—IOWA NATIONAL GUARD SOLDIERS ON THEIR WAY TO AFGHANISTAN WILL BE WEARING NEW UNIFORMS DESIGNED TO MAKE THEIR MISSION SAFER.
JASON JAGER, ONE OF THE IOWA SOLDIERS TRAINING FOR DEPLOYMENT, SAYS THE UNIFORMS FEATURE A CAMOUFLAGE PATTERN THAT WILL MAKE THE TROOPS LESS OBVIOUS IN THE TERRAIN.
COMMANDING SERGEANT MAJOR STEVE WAYMAN SAYS THE IOWA NATIONAL GUARD SOLDIERS WILL BE THE FIRST TO SPORT THE NEW UNIFORM.
THE OLDER STYLE OF UNIFORM BLENDED IN WELL IN IRAQ AND MANY OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD, BUT STOOD OUT IN AFGHANISTAN.
THE SOLDIERS ARE GETTING DIFFERENT BOOTS, TOO, THAT ARE BETTER SUITED FOR THE MOUNTANOUS COUNTRY.
ROUGHLY 3-THOUSAND IOWA NATIONAL GUARD SOLDIERS WILL HAVE THEIR BOOTS ON THE GROUND IN AFGHANISTAN BY THANKSGIVING.
RIGHT NOW, THEY ARE TRAINING AT CAMP SHELBY, MISSISSIPPI.
