Reminiscent of the WWII period, Korean war uniforms still used the black metal buttons with a multi-star pattern on its face. The yellow on black emblem was also a trademark of the Korean war period. Some of these samples also made it into the early days of the Vietnam war, however, in very small quantities. This design was not a good idea because it could compromise the location of a soldier at night. The newer uniform's name tags are produced with a color that closely ressembles that of the uniform, the lettering is now black.
