CMC orders wear of service uniforms weekly

A Marine measures the placement of his ribbons on his service “C” uniform Jan. 7 at Camp Foster. Gen. James F. Amos, the 35th commandant of the United States Marine Corps, has directed that service uniforms will be worn as the uniform of the day on Fridays starting Jan. 4. All Marines and sailors attached to Marine units, both active-duty and reserve, are required to wear the proper seasonal service uniform unless otherwise directed by their commander on a case-by-case basis.
