About US Military OD Green

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.

The USMC Eight Point Utility Cap

The 8-point utility cover is a key component of the US Marine Corps and Navy uniforms. This hat merges functionality with tradition. It resembles a baseball cap and is crafted for a sharp look. 

Eight-pointed covers evolved from US Army field caps and railroad engineer caps. 

Early Marine Corps versions were made of herringbone twill (HBT) until approximately 1959 and later cotton sateen. Modern versions are made from a durable nylon and cotton ripstop or a warmer twill fabric, catering to diverse environments. 

This utility cover, featuring ventilation eyelets and stamped with the Marine Corps EGA, continues to embody the enduring spirit and history of the USMC.
