Army raises value of clothing bag, but not replacement allowances

Enlisted soldiers will get about the same amount of money for new uniform items in 2017 as they did last year, according to numbers from the Army.

The male soldiers’ clothing bag is valued at $1,659.35, which is $15.90 more than last year.

Female soldiers’ clothing bag is set at $5.98 more than last year, for a total of $1,894.05.
