This Will Drive the Sergeants Major Bat Shit Crazy

Over at Army Times.

“The new rules provide several options for local commanders. Here’s what’s now allowed:

In garrison

  • Sleeves down.
  • Sleeves rolled with the camo facing out.
  • Sleeves rolled with the camo facing in.

In the field or deployed

  • Sleeves down.
  • Sleeves cuffed with the camo facing out.
  • Sleeves cuffed with the camo facing in.

“You’ve got options, and you make the decision, company commander,” Milley said.”

    This was a big deal in Europe in the 70s–V Corps used to wear the fatigue shirt untucked, like the BDU before there were BDUs–VII Corps said no. 21 Support Command, which I was in, followed V Corps rules in V Corps areas (Kaiserslautern), VII Corps in others. Sleeve rolling was province of community/brigade commanders. Serious stuff. No wonder the Soviets never attacked–they must have been laughing too hard about our “uniform” policy. Hard to imagine we’d trust company commanders, responsible for 100+ people and millions in equipment, to make a decision of such magnitude. FWIW, when we were in Iraq, it was sleeves down all the time.

    I think the 1AD policy is against the CSA intent.
