Marine Corps Establishes ‘Service Utilities’ For More Professional Look | The Duffel Blog

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.”

  1. Why must you f*ck with the one service whose uniform policy (other than the sleeves down bullsh*t, C’mon General Amos, work the biceps! Curls for the girls!) is not a soup sammidge?

    I see nothing wrong with a little professionalism in the workplace, and the tie goes nicely with the desert MARPAT.

    Alleast they don’t have your entire SRB sewn on them, like the damned Army suits.

    Oh, wait. Duffel Blog. So this is a joke, right?
