I saw it in passing. The uniform pants I am sure are like the the "green"
slacks I have which go with the wool uniform shirt I wear. The color
variation is both a result of the uniform pants, which do appear light
brown when compared to the dark green pants and to the photography.
The Chief's "handlers" won't let him appear anywhere -- and Chief Williams
has enough personal pride in his uniforming -- wearing the wrong uniform
top or bottom.
Unlike many of our past CSEs, Williams is a former volunteer.
