Okay I am working on Unification Forces Military Costuming and I want to compile everything in one place. Once we have everything worked out I will set up a specific 'how to' so anyone who wants to play Unification Forces can have the same uniform.
This is working off Matt Webb's Facebook post stating core uniform is : Enforcers generally wear black BDUs with armor; Unification Forces, olive green or woodland camo; Rangers are offered some leeway, but their tan/brown coats are their trademark..
I want to do ACU Digital as the core uniform - That way if we go with that we can always match.
Here is the Layout of the Digital ACU. Non-Digital ACU may vary, but should be similar so that we keep some uniformity.
Using the Ranking below here is links to ranks.

Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel- http://www.amazon.com/Come2Buy-Triangle-Nailhead-Cellphone-Accessories/dp/B00D4NPCNA
Another option for Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel could be these.http://www.ebay.com/itm/USSR-WW2-RKKA-VV-OF-NKVD-NCO-RANK-INSIGNIA-TRIANGLE-EMBLEM-REPLICA-/111565330727?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19f9cfd927

Name Badges - http://www.militarynametapefactory.com/products-page/army-tapes/ You can customize these, so you can have your characters name on them. You can also add U.F.G.C if you wanted as a branch tab.
This is a start, let me know if I missed anything or you have anything to add. I am still having a problem finding enlisted ranks that look right, but I am sure they are out there somewhere.
The other issue I am seeing is ribbons and medals. I know a few of my friends who are formal military do not like someone doing mock ribbons since they were not earned (not to mention under the Stolen Valor Act it may be considered illegal (based on my understanding of the law), but in a LARP context were its known to be mock I don't think it breaches the law). BUT I love ribbons and the idea of those type of medals. So I am thinking something like these:
If everything goes right and this is all agreed on, I can even map them out with 'what they are' and give us an actual ribbon/medal list.
What do you have to add? Any suggestions? Any corrections?
