The Pacific camouflage pattern was the first camouflage pattern that found widespread use with the United States Armed Forces. In 1942, General Douglas MacArthur requested a large supply of camouflage uniforms for use in the Pacific Theater during World War II, which led to the development of Pacific camouflage by Norvell Gillespie. The civilian horticulturist and magazine editor designed the five-color, green-dominant pattern that was often referred to as "frog skin" by soldiers due to its amphibious appearance.
