Features of the uniform of a US Army soldier

Every army in the world has its own distinguishing features. This is not only a military uniform as such, but also numerous insignia, including options for epaulettes and the elements that are present on them. Ivan Rudenko, who managed to serve both in the Ukrainian and American armies, tells about what features of the uniform exist in the US Army.


In the field version of the uniform, the headdress of an American soldier is a cap of characteristic shape - with a cockade (buttonhole unit) and indicating the name of the soldier. In this case, the surname is indicated on the occipital region.

The surname is duplicated on the army jacket - a patch on the right side. On the left side there is also a patch, but it indicates membership in the American army. During the "training" these inscriptions are glued to a special Velcro, and after getting into the unit all this is sewn to the form.

On a jacket in the chest area - on a flypaper the rank of the military man fastens. The chevron of the division (formation) is attached to the left forearm. Above this patch is a horseshoe-shaped chevron with the name of usually combat training courses.

All details about the features of military uniforms in the United States are in the video of Rudenko:

                - And this is according to the charter ... During the war, there were orange and red galloons on shoulder straps of sergeant staff ... In the 80s, on the shoulder straps of a field uniform, a galloon of dark red color was used.

          I doubt the practicality of windings with boots against boots, but in any case it is a form of army that has covered itself with glory.

          Sorry, why do you like her, mustache? Or windings? Do you seriously think that this is a normal version of a soldier’s outfit these days? No, of course, if there is a serious war, that is how you will be dressed and chased with a bayonet attack on those alvarez that is in the first photo, but how many steps you can manage to run from your trench, the question is ...

    Once the "leader of the world proletariat" V.I. Lenin prophetically said: "We will go the other way!" Since then we go. Not a single Army of the world (!!!), except the Russian one, patches with the "last name of the serviceman" and "armed forces" DO NOT mold pockets on the valve! Nowhere before such senility did not think! fool It looks especially scruffy on the field uniform, you just have to put something in your breast pockets!

      Previously, if you see a “chicken” on a black officer jacket — an anchor with wings (you embroidered yourself) —you understand that the poor fellow serves on the TAKR. Now double-headed chickens on each garment more than once. Say the emblem? Well, there was a coat of arms on the shoulder straps of the marshals, and that's enough. If you see a boat with a star or a ship on your chest, you understand that this hard-earned sign is that a person is allowed to independently manage a submarine or a ship of rank 1-2. Now ...

          - After the channel of Voenruk was closed, this is perhaps the only Russian-language channel where you can find out something interesting ... Alex Svyatov has his own channel ... but after they pressed Rudenko, it will probably close.

            Both of their channels of these traitors to their homeland, especially Svyatov, are simply imbued with the spirit of Bendery and hatred of Russia, under the guise of stories about the American army, they constantly promote theses about their superiority to us and the exclusivity of the US army.
            But their shape, yes, of course, is still far from us, and this is confirmed by the purchase of uniforms and ammunition for our specialists from Crye Precision, as well as small arms from Glock and other grandees. Warrior and Kalash are good, but it can be better if you don’t save money.

                I don’t argue, the channels from the point of view of the technical side and combat training in the US Army are interesting for both, but each video shows a disregard for Russia and its army and I personally dislike these moments in the arguments of two former Armed Forces servicemen, one of whom is a defector, He entered the United States on a tourist visa, poured a bucket of slop on his country and asked for asylum, and the second, if I am not mistaken, received a green card in the annual lottery of the US State Department for those who want to get over the difficulties in their homeland. In all the hardships of Ukraine, they clearly blame Russia and its aggression and justify their betrayal of their homeland, they would stay and defend it, but no, it’s easier to yap over the Internet on the Internet.

                  - Neglect of the likely enemy’s army is enough here, on the site ... and this is not right!
                  “But at least they decided, and they moved to the States ... let them live there for themselves.” But what about those to whom life at home is not life, and courage is not enough to leave? These will be any more dangerous ...

                    But it’s not a matter of courage, that one is afraid of boarding a plane and forward, the point is stupidity, laziness, the absence of normal skills and knowledge of languages, and with such talents neither here nor there life is life. And whoever has all this is good everywhere.
                    The same Svyatov, the aforementioned, left with knowledge of 4 languages ​​and experience in intelligence service in officer posts, it is clear that he was taken into the infantry as an ordinary soldier easily. And Rudenko, it seems, in Odessa the aeromobile faculty graduated, if I am not mistaken, I had already watched them.

        I asked Rudenko on the channel, why did their special forces catch up so late? Was there no one to tell them? So they just need to know what is the Internet, and then - YouTube ... And in it they try to monetize their double oaths such as Rudenko ..
        But Razvedos didn’t leave anywhere, the oath is behind him and broadcasts competently ... From what I heard from him ...

    I don’t like our uniform now, the field summer is very warm in it in the summer and is stupidly sewn, all with Velcro that live for half a year, chevrons change once a year and you have to constantly order and change them, who wore windproof suits also got a lot of thrills, he it stupidly gets wet and climbs from the inside, the insulated jacket also gets wet through, but in winter it’s warm, the demi-season set of norms turned out to be successful, well, berets, of course, it’s a disaster, even the old hippos and crocodiles were more decent, the feeling was made of cardboard. I remember the old flora with warmth, sewn up the chevrons and wear it until it is worn off, wear it in winter and summer, just change your clothes, it was easier to sew a penny and buttons than to replace the lock, the soldiers are now walking with wired locks. So there is much to strive for us, but in general a good slide the best clothes

    And thank God. He is finished. While he had a knife channel, the nationality of the subscription did not bother him, and as soon as his income for life became independent of the channel, they all abruptly learned that Sasha hates Russia. Either the cuckoo went with him, or he hid his hatred while it was beneficial to him. Comrades suggested that they generally saw him on the street in the company of the Nazis.
