New guidance from CSAF on the wear of Blues every Monday,
starting 8 Sep 08. Each Wing/Installation will most likely have specific
for their personnel.
Caution, like all new policy guidance, someone is bound to come up with their
own interpretation of it. Look back at the controversy of ABU/BDU cold weather
rewrote from the attached PDF:
the events of September 11, 2001, it was common practice for a majority of Air
Force members to wear blue uniform as their duty uniform. While MAJCOM
policies often differed, it was also common practice to wear utility uniforms
one day a week. Post 9/11 we've moved away from blue uniforms almost
altogether and have transformed into an Air Force that wear our utility uniform
on a daily basis.
During our recent 4-Star summit, we had
several discussions concerning our uniforms, including the wear of our blue
uniform on a routine basis. we all agreed that part of our image, culture,
and professionalism is instilled in our blues. As a result, effective 8
Sep 08, the ble uniform will be the duty uniform worn every Monday by the Air
Force uniformed personnel in appropriate career fields and environments as
determined by your installation commander.
commanders have authority to adjust this policy to meet mission requirements
(e.g.. AOR, exercises, etc.)
