Air Force recruits in basic training are now being issued the new Operational Camouflage Pattern uniform, which is part of a larger change in uniforms throughout the service.

Initial-entry airmen at the 37th Training Wing in Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, were the first to be issued the OCPs, the Air Force said in a statement Monday.

New recruits issued the prior uniform will have to buy the OCPs with their clothing allowance.
