Why Is the Marine Corps Fighting With the Navy Over a Camouflage Pattern? Two branches of the U.S. military are locked in a property battle worthy of Google and Apple. Military combat uniforms have two purposes: to camouflage soldiers, and to hold together in rugged conditions. It stands to reason that there's only one "best" pattern, and one best stitching and manufacture.

Akron and Macon were only 20 feet shorter than the Hindenburg and at the time, the two American airships were among the largest flying objects in the world.    USS Akron served as an airborne aircraft carrier, launching Sparrowhawk fighters and the airship apparently had room for three planes. USS Macon was operated by the US Navy in the early 1930s and designed to carry five Sparrowhawks. The Macon was lost in a storm off California in 1935, but most members of the crew survived.
