Although I do not like the military, but
because of a fine review I finished reading the book
In this book and in another little picture book of the
US Military Academy at West Point, NY
I see what seems to be dozens and dozens of
brass buttons all up and down the dress uniform
and even on the rear flaps.
I have Googled in vain to find out why so many
of these buttons , most of which do not appear
to be used and/or buttoned.
They look stupid – IMO
Can someone tell me when the uniform got so many buttons
and why the school keeps using this multi-buttoned uniform?
