    Looks like the military is doing away with the traditional BC glasses and replaced them with a more updated version, though still ugly if you ask me.

    I hope I get the updated versions come May. Perfect timing for me I guess! there a lot more modern than the orginal BCG's

    How in the world did you find that story? Search BCG's?? LOL They aren't bad but I still think they will be successful as birth control.

    Old Guard,
    Actually, the story made the front page of the online version of San Diego's Union Tribune (San Diego's newspaper). We are a military city, so I guess it was important I'm so glad my son did not need glasses at boot camp!! The new style isn't much better than the old!

    I saw a lot of people keep their BC glasses, especially for range shooting since they double as safety glasses.
    If you were hoping for the A Team you will be sorry to know you got the F Troop.

    Ah shucks...I was hoping to score me a pair of the infamous BCG's when I get to boot camp in April! I guess I don't really mind this newer version, they are fairly similar to the ones I'm currently wearing ;P

    I was really worried about you, Cable. I know I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to military news but looking for glasses articles... LOL

    OK, this time. But if you come up with any other bizarre information, I'm going to start to worry!

    Ugh we have a third at my unit who still wears the old ones like they're going out of style. To be perfectly honest, though, the new ones aren't half bad--especially when you compare to what they used to be

    The new ones are much MUCH better in my opinion. I only wish they would be around for my March ship date .
