Since the uniforms predate the plastic tipped .17HMR, I think OP is just looking for a day not year.
Looks like March 17th would be the answer.

It's an Armed Forces Day coloring book page of WWI soldiers--despite the fact that the artist drew (post-1936) Garands in there

The US Army figure is wearing the uniform (including leggings and helmet) from the pre-WW2 era. All the web gear was used as shown well into WW2.
The 1917a1 (Kelly) helmet was in use at Pearl Harbor and Wake Island. The blouse/tunic and trousers are based on the WW1 field uniform but was retained in WW2 as the class A's.

Are we talking St. Patrick's day? Going to the range? Shooting .17hmr?
