    Im surprising a buddy at his OCS graduation on Thursday, and want to wear my blues and try and swear him in. This is all short notice so my uniform isn't exactly good to go.
    My greens are fucked up, so that rules them out.

    My dress blues are perfect, except the fact that I dont have a cap to wear them with(i've only had to wear them at night, so iv resisted the need to waste money). I have to buy a Cav stetson anyways for my unit, and I was thinking of just buying that and being done with it, but im afraid some of these Ft. Benning gays are gonna give me a AR 670-1 rundown on my cover. Should I just plunk down the money on the cap and then have to buy the stetson too? Im never gonna wear that fucking cap :mad:

    i would either read 670-1 and see what it says about the wear of the Stetson....or if you're unsure, just buy the garrison cap for the blues....


    eventually, i'll have to buy the cap too...same boat as you though, haven't had to rock the blues during the day yet, so no need for a cap.

    Spend the money and buy the proper head gear. You would look like a pink fairy wearing a stetson in that crowd. Not to mention some old Cav O5 or O6 is going to start questioning you if you wear the stetson.

    its just gay that i have to buy a cap and never wear it. I'll never be required to wear it at ANY function on this post. So thats spending money for something I may never use again. GAYYYYY

    Not having all of your uniforms ready to go at a moments notice = GAAAYYY...


    Gah. What's wrong with people these days. LAZY. If your greens wouldn't have been all f'ed up, you wouldn't have to worry about this, wouldn't you?

    Suck it up and by the proper headgear +1

    and let the record show that i'll be pinning on his shiny new bars in a pair of jeans, some chuck taylors, and a polo shirt. Because I refuse to buy a silly fucking hat i'll never wear again for 80 bucks.

    what favor is that? im surprising him halfway across the country since all of his other friends and relatives are unavailable. I think its important to have someone there during an accomplishment like that, regardless of me wearing a Stetson or a clown suit.
    No stetson, no deal. I'll just wear civie clothes.

    Well if you do get it, make sure you get a picture of you wearing it and hang that in your office...

    lulz - my shit is still in storage from my move. I'm waiting to get into my new apt before I dig it all out.

    That being said...I have to buy new caps - field grade and all now. Figure I might do that this morning while I'm thinking of it.

    Okay. So I come across as an a$$ most of the time. I have to with a few people in my shop, or they will never get things done.

    Given the circumstances, since you didn't fully explain, it sucks. Glad to see everything went well.

    I actually agree with your first post. Regardless of shit happening, you should always have your uniform squared away but with that being said, shit does happen. Hopefully TMO was able to replace his ruined uniform.
