    GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS, OUR CORPS HAS BEEN IN A
    TRANSITION PHASE WITH REGARD TO OUR UTILITY UNIFORMS. THAT PERIOD
    IS NOW ENDED. AS MARINES, OUR UNIFORMS AND MILITARY APPEARANCE ARE
    AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR IDENTITY AND HAVE TRADITIONALLY MARKED US
    AS THE NATION'S MOST DISTINCTIVE MILITARY SERVICE. AS SUCH,
    UNIFORMITY AND AN OUTWARD PRIDE IN OUR APPEARANCE HAVE BEEN
    CONSTANTS FOR EVERY MARINE - FROM PRIVATE TO GENERAL.
    2. THE PURPOSE OF THIS ALMAR IS TO ENHANCE THAT UNIFORMITY; TO
    FURTHER DEFINE WHAT ARE CONSIDERED EMERGENCY STOPS OFF-BASE IN THE
    MARINE CORPS COMBAT UTILITY UNIFORM (MCCUU); AND TO PRESCRIBE SEASONAL
    WEAR AND APPROPRIATE LOCATIONS FOR THE MCCUU WHILE IN GARRISON. THIS
    ALMAR APPLIES TO THE ACTIVE AND RESERVE FORCE. THIS ALMAR OUTLINES
    SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO CURRENT POLICY AND SHOULD BE READ IN ITS ENTIRETY.
    3. THE MCCUU IS A FIELD UNIFORM AND IS NOT APPROPRIATE FOR WEAR IN A
    CIVILIAN ENVIRONMENT. WEAR OF THE MCCUU IS AUTHORIZED WHILE COMMUTING
    TO AND FROM WORK VIA PRIVATELY OWNED VEHICLE. HOWEVER, EFFECTIVE
    IMMEDIATELY, AND AS A SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO THE REF, EN ROUTE STOPS
    WHILE OFF-BASE ARE NOT AUTHORIZED EXCEPT FOR BONAFIDE EMERGENCIES, SUCH
    AS MEDICAL EMERGENCIES, VEHICLE BREAKDOWN, OR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS.
    4. MARINES MAY ONLY WEAR THE MCCUU AT OFF-BASE ESTABLISHMENTS WHEN USING
    DRIVE-THRU SERVICES SUCH AS ATMS, FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS, OR DRY CLEANERS
    WHEN THEY WILL NOT EXIT THE VEHICLE.
    4.A. THE MCCUU IS NOT AUTHORIZED FOR WEAR AT OFFICIAL / UNOFFICIAL
    FUNCTIONS AND CONFERENCES HELD OFF-BASE OR OFF GOVERNMENT INSTALLATIONS
    AND FACILITIES.
    4.B. IAW ALMAR 054/06, MARINES IN THE NATIONAL CAPITAL REGION CONTINUE
    TO BE RESTRICTED FROM WEARING THE MCCUU ON ANY FORM OF PUBLIC
    TRANSPORTATION, TO INCLUDE METRO, BUSES, AND SLUG LINES; AND AT ANY
    DOD-LEASED, CIVILIAN FACILITIES, SUCH AS THOSE IN CRYSTAL CITY.
    5. EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, WHEN THE MCCUU UNIFORM IS DESIGNATED BY A
    LOCAL COMMANDER AS THE UNIFORM OF THE DAY IN GARRISON, THE FOLLOWING
    POLICY APPLIES:
    5.A. DURING THE SUMMER SEASON, THE DESERT MCCUU WITH SLEEVES ROLLED UP
    WILL BE WORN AS THE UNIFORM OF THE DAY.
    5.B. DURING THE WINTER SEASON, THE WOODLAND MCCUU WITH SLEEVES DOWN WILL
    BE WORN AS THE UNIFORM OF THE DAY.
    5.C. LOCAL COMMANDERS WILL CONTINUE TO PRESCRIBE THE APPROPRIATE UNIFORM
    FOR FIELD AND TACTICAL ENVIRONMENTS.
    5.D. WHEN AUTHORIZED FOR WEAR, DESERT FLIGHT SUITS WILL BE WORN IN THE
    SUMMER SEASON AND GREEN FLIGHT SUITS WILL BE WORN IN THE WINTER SEASON.
    6. THE INTENT OF THIS ALMAR IS TO CREATE A STANDARD FOR WEAR OF THE
    MCCUU FOR ALL MARINES. HOWEVER, IT IS RECOGNIZED THAT UNIFORM POLICIES
    AT CERTAIN JOINT HEADQUARTERS, AND CLIMACTIC CONDITIONS AT SOME OF OUR
    BASES OR STATIONS, MAY LEAD TO REQUESTS FOR WAIVER TO POLICY. SUCH
    REQUESTS FOR WAIVER SHOULD BE SUBMITTED BY COMMANDING GENERALS OR
    COMPONENT COMMANDERS, WITH JUSTIFICATION, TO THE COMMANDANT. ANY SUCH
    REQUESTS FOR WAIVER WILL BE CONSIDERED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS.

    well, no that was never authorized. The only places that were authorized were stopping to get gas, the bank, and dropping kids off at day care.

    I could care less. None of this effects me since I live on base but lots of people with kids dont seem to like it very much. :mamoru:. They told us we better plan ahead and get gas before we get off base. Anything thing off base that involves you opening your door to get out is a :nono:

    I find it kinda funny that the greens are basically for winter season now, when they were designed for a jungle locale.

    Other than that, I need to buy another desert blouse now because a pen exploded in the pocket. :(

    so you guys can go around in charlies/bravos/alpha right? just not MCCUU anymore?




    This seems kinda dumb, but i agree i hate seeing members of the military flaunting it.
