Now to talk about OD Green. The O.D. for the color green is a basic military color that is often called OD, but it stands for “olive drab” – think the U.S. Army dark olive green. It was used as a camouflage color for equipment and uniforms predominantly during the Second World War. Olive drab was the standard color of the fighting uniform for U.S. soldiers and military vehicles during World War II.
But there is nothing really drab about our OD Green and it would work well with several other colors, such as….Seafoam, Ice Peach and Shell. It’s a little sad now that we have come a full year of detailing our Kona Cotton color of the day and now we say goodbye to the daily color post, but take heart because we aren’t going away…. we are just transitioning to the new year coming up – 2022. We have LOTS of fun things planned already.
