Critics unimpressed by U.S. Space Force uniform

The USA has shown off uniforms for its new Space Force. The U.S. Space Force (USSF) was created in December alongside the U.S. Space Command. The uniforms were designed for Space Force personnel. The design has created quite a stir on social media. It is the regular green, black and brown army camouflage. It is not camouflaged for space. The Space Force Twitter account said the uniforms had "touched down in the Pentagon".

The USSF is the USA's first new armed service since its Air Force started in 1947. President Trump said it would help stop aggression from, "the ultimate high ground". He said: "Amid grave threats to our national security, American superiority in space is absolutely vital." Many people think the uniform should be black to blend in with the dark of space. The military said new uniforms would waste taxpayers' money. No soldiers will go into space any time soon.
