About Military Olive Drab

Olive drab as a US military color goes way back. In 1902, the US Army made it standard issue, and the Marines adopted a similar forest green uniform in 1912. 

The classic version of OD green, OG-107, was a prominent color pattern used by the US Marine Corps from 1952 to 1989. This dark green hue was central to the standard utility uniform of all US Armed Forces branches like the Army, Air Force, and Navy. 

OG-107 stands for Olive Green 107 and was fundamental in various settings, from the Korean War to the Vietnam War. In combat scenarios, particularly in Vietnam, Marines often transitioned to the Tropical Combat Uniform, better suited for jungle environments. Despite this, Olive Drab remained a staple for non-combat attire and stateside service. 

The transition to the woodland-patterned Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) began in 1981, gradually phasing out olive drab by 1989. This color, synonymous with the US military for decades, symbolized the standard appearance of Marines during this era.
