Khaki in C-130 Historical Posted December 11, 2011 When I went through Basic in 74 we were issued 1505s. The new short sleeved blue shirts had just been approved by the Uniform Board, but was not included as part of the basic issue. I seem to remember buying one in Clothing Sales at LRAFB, late 76, just before PCSing to Woodbridge. Regarding that long sleeve, dark blue shirt.... can't remember the designation, but man did it look sharp. I bought one to wear home on my first Christmas leave and remember walking around in the airport thinking I was a hot stuff crew doggy. It was also the only uniform authorized to have military creases in the back. I believe it left the building sometime around the late 70s, early 80s.
