Some sailors aren't wearing their aquaflage cammies correctly, according to the Navy's top sailor.
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (AW/NAC) Mike Stevens told Navy Times recently that not everyone seems to have the finer points down when it comes to the proper wear of the Navy Working Uniform. He's planning an education campaign to raise the fleet's expertise, citing the fact that only those who received the uniforms in boot camp really got the complete lowdown on wearing it.
Blousing the pants, wearing the right boots, and getting the eight-point cover on correctly are some things Stevens said some sailors may need a refresher on.
So what issues have you seen or experienced in wearing NWUs? What are some of your biggest pet peeves?
Are there wear rules or accessories where you'd like clarification on how to properly wear the uniform?
