According to a recent press release from the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force, this may very well be the case.
“We are committed to equipping Airmen with the most advanced capabilities available at the earliest time possible,” Air Force officials said Aug. 24. “Based on feedback from Airmen, we believe the Operation Enduring Freedom Camouflage Pattern (OCP) provides advanced protection to servicemembers while operating outside the wire in Afghanistan. Army (officials), while beginning an aggressive fielding schedule, (are) working with Air Force (officials) to support developing a long-term joint fielding strategy later this year.”
This is great news for Afghanistan-bound Airmen. Maybe the Air Force will just say what the heck and issue all deploying Airmen MultiCam clothing and equipment.
