New Navy uniform makes me wretch

I was reading the Navy Times this morning and saw the new uniforms replacing the old traditional "Dress Blues and Whites" along with their working counterparts and it made me wretch.

Last time I checked, the U.S. Navy was not the U.S. Marines and I'm sure my devil dog buddies are equally offended that the squids are now wearing cammies and Charlies where they're both totally useless. Why do squids need to wear cammies on a gray ship?

The uniforms look offensive and worse why did the Navy suddenly decide to destroy over 100 years of tradition by getting rid of the classic blues? As if women in blue tops and skirt bottoms wasn't insulting enough!

I'm glad I retired when I did. Khaki does not belong on a low ranked enlisted uniform. The Navy is bending more and more to the effeminate socialist view of civilian liberal experamentation.

I'm not sure what he's talking about.  Hubby's uniforms haven't changed from cammo, to khaki's, to white dress to blue dress -
nothing has changed Undecided

It's completely crazy.  The Navy's uniform policies have always been crazy and the constant seeking of "change" is nuts. 

Besides the obvious need for leadership to stand out by wearing a different uniform (unlike non-sea services) I feel sorry for these guys who have to try to pack all this crap into their lockers for six months just to make a focus group happy.

"This wasn’t a popularity contest by any stretch, but we would have been foolish not to consider the opinions of the men and women who will wear these uniforms." [said CJCS/CNO]

"In our research, we found the group most dissatisfied with their present uniforms were E-6 and below," [Master Chief] Scott said. -- navy.mil

I liked the khaki uniforms and disliked the lower enlisted uniforms but agree khakis are better reserved to the privilege of rank. It appears the new working uniform for E1-O10, i.e. all, will be:

When did you retire Dan?

I bowed out in 2003 after 21 years.

No more waiting for those khakis, you can have them right away, simply badger the CNO with e-mail and soon they will be wearing pajamas and flip flops to fight fires aboard a ship!

Oh well, 21.5 and out, i miss my washed khakis the most.

I hated the enlisted uniforms in the mid to late 70s and was overjoyed when the bell bottoms came back in. The old suit type uniforms were crap, always wrinkled and sailors never had enough stowage to keep them need.  Why the navy can't leave well enough alone I can never figure out. Wonder if they actually asked the younger enlisted what they thought of the new uniforms BEFORE the CNO  came down with this thing. Most likely the enlisted asked were senior ranks. Angry
