    Naval Medical Center - Portsmouth

    Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) Sailors wear the blue camouflage Navy Working Uniform (NWU) for the last time, observing colors out front of the historic Building 1 at NMCP. The NWU Type I will no longer be authorized for wear as of Tuesday, Oct. 1, according to a timeline sent out by the Navy three years ago.
    Along with this uniform change, the eight-point cap is also being updated with the anchor, USS Constitution and eagle emblem (ACE) stitched into the front-center panel, where Sailors were previously allowed to put rank insignia.
    The NWU Type I is being discontinued after an 11-year run. First introduced in 2008 as part of a uniform modernization program based on sailor input, the blue camouflage uniform was intended to be worn by enlisted and officers to show unification among the ranks.
