Class A and B are US Army designations for different uniforms.
This terminology is especially pervasive in areas with a high
concentration of ex or current Army. After a while, most
start using it - even the boys.
While not an official designation, it can be useful. However,
we do need to make sure that this creeping militarism 8-) does
not turn the BSA inot Junior ROTC.
