New Navy Service Uniform SUCKS! ?
Navy and Marine Only please: Listen I used to be enlisted and I am really mad at the new service uniform. People join the military for many reasons one of them is belonging to a heritage that is bigger then there own. When I went to Basic i was told about the 13 buttons on my cracker jacks on what that meant. I was proud as any Marine would be in that you know a Sailor or Marine when you see one. I guess that could be said for any branch but my point is the uniforms have meaning beyond the material they are made. I do not understand how come we have to take heritage away from the Marines to make the Navy look better. The whole khaki shirt issue is an issue and every Chief should be p****d off to all hell! Why are the CPO's letting this uniform stand. I was honored to become an officer in part because of the CPO color of Khaki! I think it is an outrage and what do 1st classes have to look forward to now but a change in pay and a couple weeks of training to be a CPO? CPO's take sometimes over a decade to make and now just like black berets in the Army the Navy is ripping off CPO heritage! Marines should be mad because it is not hard to tell the Marine uniform from the Navy Service Uniform. The uniform has Marine heritage attached not Navy. Marines should be mad because Big Navy stole there uniform. Grant it that it is not the best looking Uniform a Marine can have but the point still stands. I do not understand why we do not get our own BDU/ACU in the Navy. At least with blue camouflage it would be unique to the Navy. I would hope uniform policy for this uniform would fall in line with the Army and Marine Corps but that is another issue I have with Pilots and flight suits. I am ok with the officer Khaki jacket the CNO has been sporting at least that is going back to a uniform that is unique to the Navy and recognized as such. So my point is I hope this uniform ends up in the garbage and Heritage of the Navy is it's own and now stolen from the Marines! Please let me know if you agree or disagree with this assessment. Thank you!

that uniform sucks, our navy corpsmen were allowed to wear the marine uniform if they kept in marine standards. I like the navy a lot of cool friends. I was a marine for 8 years. I didnt know anything about the uniform change

I agree with you fully, i enjoyed being able to tell Marines and Navy uniforms apart ( i love the pickle suit,it has character), Navy cracker jacks distinguish them from all the other services. I'm actually surprised they now mimic each other except for rank placement, now not only are civilians gonna confuse Marines... More
