  Army Combat Uniform (ACU)
The Army Combat Uniform, or ACU, is a new combat uniform (battledress) to be worn by the United States Army.
The color fl was omitted from the uniform to distinguish it from the Marine Corps colors and to minimize the color fl, which, according to the Army, is not commonly found in nature.
Additionally, personnel have been instructed that the uniform must be washed with a mild detergent that does not contain "optical brighteners." Detergents with optical brighteners may cause discoloration to the uniform, which would nullify the purpose of the very specific camouflage design and result in possible unwanted detection of personnel using the uniforms in combat.

 The Army's new camouflage. - By Tom Vanderbilt - Slate Magazine
The new uniform is far removed from the idea of ceremonial military dress or leather-booted authoritarianism that once dominated military dress; rather than constricting and constraining, it gives and breathes and is somewhat shapeless and untucked.
The Army announced that with the Green Army Uniform, it was "building a uniform tradition." In response to Vietnam jungle combat, the Army unveiled a number of new camouflage patterns—e.g., M65 ERDL, and the famous "tiger stripe" pattern—each designed by the Army Engineer Research and Development Laboratory.
People under-play the role that a uniform plays in the success of any athletic endeavor, and that is exactly what an infantryman's job is.
