“I read in the paper that the army had thousands of unwanted uniforms that they were planning to burn and I asked if I could have them as people in this town do not have a lot of money. I gave every family in the town men’s and women’s uniforms, and they modified the garments to fit children as well.”
Ioan Ciocea, the mayor of Bustuchin, Romania, explaining why residents there have taken to wearing army uniforms year-round.
