About Military Khaki
Khaki, a foundational color in U.S. military combat uniforms, holds significant history in the Marine Corps. Adopted by Marines post-Civil War, khaki field uniforms were worn until 1912, before switching to forest green. The Army also adopted khaki in 1902, following its success in the Spanish-American War. Known as tan or desert tan, khaki served as an alternate semi-dress uniform for warmer months until the 1980s.
In the Marine Corps, khaki was not just a color but a symbol of versatility and heritage. It featured in various uniform styles, balancing functionality and a semi-formal look. This color remained prominent in summer service uniforms until its gradual replacement by newer patterns. Today, khaki is utilized sparingly but is still considered an important color in the US military.
