Why would he want to do that? The day I got out of the service all my uniforms went into the garbage where they belonged.

He will be barely out of boot camp and most certainly not finished with his enlistment.

The Army boots made decent motorcycle boots and I went on countless interviews wearing the Army Class A Tan long sleeve shirt and a super wide tie I found at Goodwill. Didn't get any of those jobs. In retrospect, I guess I should have worn pants.

BillCo: I'm as patriotic as the next guy and probably more so than most of the Fark hippies, but I have to agree with the principal.  Let this guy wear his uniform and the next thing you know, some jerk is going to want to wear a clown suit.

I hope you kept the boots.  I wore mine all winter for years, saved me a lot of money.

SnarfVader:
"boat smell."

Combination of industrial detergent, marine paint, oil and 100 other people's BO?  Just guessing here.


Living in a submarine hygiene is a joke,
you don't use shampoo and you don't use soap,
Down by the bathroom hear the 'tanky' swear:
"You'd better not waste any water in there!"

On the surface on the bottom or somewhere in between,
it really doesn't matter if you're dirty or you're clean,
Able Seaman, Chiefy, the Skipper or the Queen,
nobody showers in a submarine.

On a diesel boat you've got no water to spare,
you can't use the shower, stow the beer in there,
You're oily and grimy for a month or so,
on 'up-channel-night' to the bathroom you go.

Two basins of water and a pint beer mug,
get your lagging off and get ready to scrub,
Put some green jelly on a scratchy pad,
grit your teeth and start scrubbing like mad.

When you're red as lobster then you're ready to rinse,
some foo-foo dust will make you smell like a prince
The last of the water's just enough for your teeth
so finish up pronto make some room for the Chief.

Next evening at the disco in your sharp civvy clothes,
every girl around you starts holding her nose,
For the way that you smell there is no antidote,
they can tell that you're a sailor on a diesel boat.

Oh goody, another soldier demanding special treatment and then whining to the media when he doesn't get it.

Interesting that he and his family don't get the concept of a UNIFORM that everyone is expected to wear at graduation.

I remember being in traffic court somewhere in Virginia. It was like the Village People Cosplay Convention was in town. All the nurses stopped in to contest their tickets while on the way to work in full scrubs and the one VMI cadet had his dress uniform on. The construction worker had on a crisp,white tank top and form helmet while the Indian was dressed in his finest war dress.

I'm neither a Marine nor a patriotic 'Murikan (I'm too soshalest to qualify) so I'll break the tie. Shut up and wear the damn gown.

To be fair, he may not be entirely the whiny tantrum-throwing disgrace to our beloved Core that we're making him out to be:

Hamlin said he didn't want to make a big deal out of the matter, but his sister Tiffiny Bradley posted information about it on multiple Twin Cities media Facebook pages.

Sister-like typing detected.

Military uniforms are dangerous. They shut down a school district last week when a soldier went to a school in uniform to pick up his transcripts. Think of the children for once why dont you.

I still kept a one uniform (not sure why). Funny thing though, when you get out and wake up that first morning and say "wait, I don't have to get up this early and go do PT"...and make that a habit for about a year...you'll find that all of the sudden those uniforms don't quite fit like they used to for some reason.

Cheviot: It's a high school graduation. There is a uniform for high school graduations. It's a cap and gown. You wear the appropriate uniform for the event, not what you choose to wear.


Fortunately for this kid, the Marine Corps has no such foolish rules and regulations. They will let him sleep in on Sunday, too.

clkeagle: If going to the graduation ceremony is his goal, he should dress the same as his classmates


Exactly.

Graduation is an academic achievement.  The uniform of the day is your cap and gown.  He will have the opportunity to wear a uniform to his graduation from basic training.

Now this delicate snowflake is not even a Marine yet.  Someone needs to forward this article on to his drill instructors at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot that he will be attending.
