Brown Bag Lecture: The Theory of Uniforms

FREE Brown Bag Lecture: The Theory of Uniforms
A Cochise College Center for Lifelong Learning Event

Join us as presenter Glenn Minuth asks the question: "How many reasons can you come up with for why people wear uniforms?". There are many reasons and especially if you examine those worn by the military. Who has the best uniforms? You be the judge. You will see some of the most internationally dazzling creations and those that border on the weird while gaining insight into their functional purposes, including standardization, and the importance of military decorations; delving into such aspects from award inflation to the infamous cases of stolen valor. You will also observe the fascinating masking techniques of effective uniform camouflage. So, if the instructor shows you a landscape, will you be able to "find the sniper"? You have only seconds to identify his location before he has the advantage over you. Don't worry; you will be offered several attempts to succeed...if you can!
