No, Space Force uniform design on social media isn’t real, officials say
Some say it looks like a bad flight attendant uniform. Others compare it to the dress of the East German police. But a graphic floating around on social media depicting a concept for the U.S. Space Force uniform is not authentic, a Space Force spokesperson told Military.com.
“The uniform graphic shared on social media is not an official US Space Force uniform design concept,” Major Nick Mercurio said in an email on Tuesday. “The Space Force service uniform is still in development.”
Twitter users posted an image of a man and a woman wearing what was supposed to be a proposal for the service’s latest dress uniform – which he has yet to unveil.
The denim-colored uniform shows an oversized pocket near the left lapel, a silver-gray border on the jacket line, and a high-waisted belt with a large buckle with Polaris, or the North Star, which officials say means Space Force. “fundamental value, our guiding light. “
Polaris extends over each cuff of the jacket sleeve for the male officer in the photo, while the enlisted woman’s uniform shows only a chevron rank crest.
The service robe also has a few places to attach pins with the delta design which is featured in the official Space Force logo and appears on its seal. and flag.
Presentations or “pre-decision” ideas have already been disseminated online. For example, the United States Aviation for months evaluating an update of his physical training uniforms; such a proposal to give aviators a more elegant look while training caught on on the popular Air Force Amn / Nco / Snco Facebook page in 2018.
Regardless of the origin, this design is simply not what the Space Force envisions, Mercurio stressed.
The Space Force itself is weighing many new decisions, which officials say are expected to be announced within the next year.
In addition to the uniform, the Space Force still does not have a fitness uniform and a mess uniform; an official song; wear patches and badges – not to mention a rank structure. He has already announced his organizational structure; official logo, seal, flag and motto; a dark navy blue name strip; a pin; and a name for its members: Guardians.
“There are a few decisions out there that ‘good enough’ aren’t really good enough,” Space Force No. 2 Officer Gen. David “DT” Thompson, the Vice Chief of Space Operations, recently told Military.com. “This is the one we really want to achieve because the first time people wear it, the first time they see it, it’s going to leave a first impression.”
One of the Air Force groups put together a small team of lyricists and musicians to create what will one day be the official Space Force song.
“They actually came up with a series of themes, words, concepts and ideas that integrated them into a set of sentences. [that will coincide with] music associated with these themes, ”said Thompson.
The service received unsolicited submissions musicians from all over the country, but “we are developing what I will call ‘the candidate’,” he said.
