Violet - For Violet, I saw a pale, faded dress that she has altered her best throughout the years. Maybe it was her mom’s or she had bought it second hand. Violet is the personification of the scarred Nation that happened after the assassination of President Kennedy. As a symbol of the country, I had considered variations of red, white, and blue the image of a battered flag.  However, I felt having her in all blue would be best. Blue could serve as a symbol of the country and also reflect Violets personality. . 
Flick - as a man of color in the south in the early 1960's, Flick is up against a lot. I saw him as a gentleman and a scholar. He's had to go above and beyond to achieve his rank of 2nd Sargent. He is neat and exact.
Monty - Monty is the opposite of Flick. Monty is paratrooper Corporal. He's a thrill seeker, prone to not following rules and regulations and I think that would reflect in how he wears his uniform. 
Young Vi - Young Vi and Her father appear as memories throughout the play. I wanted to set them apart with faded bleached out colors to make them look like a faded memory.
