1. I thought the woodland and dsert were phased out years ago except for special units.
2. My guess is they took airman and gave them blouses to demonstrate the uniform options, but didn't use the pants. The photo is showing the different types, not a confusing mix and match scheme.
3. Whoever signed off on that photo...I hope a dog shits on their pillow.

I was thinking the photo was a goof, and it was just fun to mock the Air Force. Your post got me curious....

It's real....and supposed to be used. LOL

I hope Sgt. Ter Haar enjoys his new fame!

Blending in, Air Force to begin wear of OCP uniform > National Guard > Guard News - The National Guard

Starting October 1, 2018, the Operational Camouflage Pattern uniform will be the new uniform of the U.S. Air Force. The OCP Replaces the Airman Battle Uniform, which has been the standard uniform since 2011, when it replaced both the woodland camouflage Battle Dress Uniform and Desert Camouflage Uniform. (Photo by Tech. Sgt. Daniel Ter Haar)

That's terrible. Obviously, the Airmen were wearing ABUs and just switched blouses. That's all that should've been visible but why TSgt Ter Haar, along with everyone else that approved it's publishing, couldn't figure it out is beyond me. What do they have a one man PAO office? Also agree with AWP, BDU and DCU were phased out several years ago, so not sure why they were even included in the photo.

That won't ever happen again.

Soon all the services will be making new uniforms, one for each different day of the week, much like college football uniforms. I kid. Slightly.

What this means is that the airforce can seamlessly move between terrain types and be hidden in all of them. I'd like to see other services do that!

Things that make you go...hmmmm
He was probably the only guy in the room in OCP. He gave his blouse to someone for use in the photo.

All-in-all, that photo is a dumpster fire, but it helps shine some light on that three ring shit show of a story.
