In a bold move designed to bring professionalism to new heights, the Marine Corps is introducing a new uniform regulation, tentatively dubbed, “Service Utilities.”
After senior leaders complained the Marine Corps was losing touch with its professional side, General James Amos, Commandant of the Marine Corps, issued a directive earlier this year directing all non-deployed active duty and reserve Marines to wear service uniforms every Friday.
“Prior to 2001, it was common practice for Marines to wear the seasonal uniform while in garrison on Fridays,” Gen Amos said in a statement. “However, I don’t think we’ve taken enough action to ensure the professionalism of this Corps. I’m taking things a step further.”
Hey, URR, that looks pretty spiffy!
