    Good point.

    Your ID card is a part of your uniform. You're required to have it, along with all your other required accoutrements.

    A little background on this. In case you guys didn't know, Marines are not allowed to wear utilities off base except to and from base and to special events that are approved by Headquarters Marine Corps. Examples of unauthorized wearing would be stopping for gas on the way home, stopping at McDonald's and going in, etc. Authorized wearing would be Fleet Week in NYC or a static display at a military appreciation event. Marines can also go through a drive through in cammies but not a Sonic (the vehicle stops). Don't ask me why, I didn't make the rules.

    The reasons the other branches should cease this is that the service uniforms are A) Harder to fake. Utilities are pretty easy to fake. You can throw them on, look at a picture online of someone else wearing them to try and get it close, and off you go. B) Is more expensive. There are a lot of gadgets, ribbons, etc you have to buy for a dress uniform and they can get pricey. Also, you aren't going to find many serviceable service uniforms at a Army Navy surplus. C) It is easy to look like crap in a service uniform if you don't know what you're doing. Everything from the allowable distance between the bottom of your trousers to the heel of the shoe to double creases to length of the belt end are things a real service member would know. Some of us get a few of those things wrong sure. But not egregiously and not all together. If it is out of regulations, it's usually only barely out. D) Personally, I think the other branches look like crap out there in utilities. They aren't made to be presented to the public. They are made for utility type work ie conducting maintenance on trucks, training, etc.
    When my husband was in the Army, there was a policy of no BDUs in public. He complains every time we see soldiers wearing their BDUs, when they are shopping, etc. He swears that they do just it to get attention. He has also wondered aloud, several times, when this policy changed.

    I've been told that the policy didn't change, only the enforcement of it. Pisses me off as well. The Army has a lot of things to fix due to the surge of people they got from the War on Terror. Those guys took anyone with a heartbeat for about 5 years there.

    The first dead giveaway was that fat tub of **** isn't a serving ranger.

    Agreed, but I doubt a civilian working on Black Friday would know that, or would probably feel disrespectful asking for it. An actual soldier would have no issue showing it though...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
