Army Green Service Uniform (AGSU)
The Army Green Service Uniform (AGSU) is a tribute to the iconic Greens uniform worn during World War II, by what has become known as the “Greatest Generation”. Started as a concept in 2018, Product Manager Soldier Clothing & Individual Equipment (PdM SCIE), Program Executive Office Soldier (PEO Soldier), worked to develop the various components of the uniform over the last several years with various non-profit agencies from SourceAmerica and National Industries for the Blind, members of the Ability One program. The Ability One program provides employment opportunities for individuals with significant disabilities, to include numerous disabled veterans as part of their workforce. Fielding of initial prototypes for fit and function evaluation began in 2018. Feedback from soldiers led to further test, evaluate, and test again until the current design was arrived at in FY20. The uniform became available for purchase in late FY20 at some Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) locations. In FY21, issue to Initial Entry Trainees at Brigade Combat Training/One Station Unit Training began, as well as expanded AAFES availability, and issue to Reserve component Soldiers through the Replacement in Kind program. Mandatory wear date for all Soldiers is 1 October 2027.
