The 3 September 2012 issue of Navy Times reported that “Blueberries” may be on their way out. The pixilated blue battle-dress uniform has no sooner been adopted than it is under consideration to be deep-sixed. From the outset, someone’s understanding of camouflage was flawed. The uniform is ideal if the wearer wishes to remain unseen in his dentist’s aquarium but ill-suited for wear afloat, on the waterfront, on a beach, or within and about the confines of a naval establishment. The Blueberries are perfect for concealment in the water, but only a small part of the Navy swims in the course of its duties; most service members work on the surface, below the surface, or fly over the surface of the sea.
