Minnesota Airmen celebrate last day to wear BDUs

Dozens of Airmen at the 133rd Airlift Wing at the air base on the Minneapolis – St. Paul international airport wore their old Battle Dress Uniform to work on Oct. 31, 2011, the last official day members of the Air Force and Air National Guard can wear BDUs. Senior non-commissioned officers like Senior Master Sgt. Mark Grieme (left) of the 133rd Operations Support Flight and Master Sgt. Mike Phillips of the 210th Engineering Installation Squadron who have been in the military since the 1970s have seen many changes over the years in Air Force Uniforms. The Airman Battle Uniform replaces the distinctive woodland camouflage pattern that dates from the early 1980s. USAF official photo by Senior Master Sgt. Mark Moss
