Without question, the return of service dress khaki has been welcomed by many officers and has even begun to make waves among the ranks of midshipmen and officer candidates. This classic uniform displays the Navy's strong sense of tradition. While we welcome the reappearance of service dress khaki, the retirement of another historic uniform has gone almost unnoticed. This uniform dates back to the beginning of naval aviation and is unfortunately slated for retirement (tentatively scheduled for 2010) with the introduction of the new Navy working uniform. I am referring, of course, to aviation working greens (AWGs).
