On Sgt. Grits message board, Dress Blues Delta are short sleeve and Dress Blues Alphas, ribbons and badges are authorized.
If you not wearing anything other than the short sleeve, I guess you might wear ribbons and badges.
I wasn't able to find anything other than what I found on Sgt. Grits message board through google...
But I might be wrong...someone will correct it, if I am wrong...

You can wear either Ribbons and Badges or just Ribbons, it's optional. That's how it was when I was on Recruiting Duty, if you're on leave just ask your Recruiter to verify or follow this link to Marine Corps Uniform Regulations (http://www.usmc.mil/directiv.nsf/0dce83e13c9c8aa685256c0c0066c2e0/6d62f5fbea2cc03a85256850005ee8de?OpenDocument)

Semper Fi and Congratulations on Earning the Title!

Thanks everyone, I graduated from PI 3rd bn M co. The best of the best:)

National Defense Ribbon, just one. Like I said, 3 months has made me a little slow, I have a hard time putting my belt on. :) There also issueing a new medal, for war on terrorism, so us little jarheads get a little decoration, but I'll earn it at itb. And in March there sending a new rotation. Nobody wants war, but I joined to help my brothers and sisters and by March I'll be ready.

Congrats on joining the Brotherhood there, Drake. I'm an ol' 3rd Bn man myself, 2036 India Co., P.I. will make ya or break ya. Gotta love those sandfleas, they give a whole different meaning to discipline. Enjoy your years in the Corps, keep your head up, keep your nose clean, and drink responsibly for goodness sake.
Remember not to use these dirty words when it comes to tasks at hand, "can't" and "impossible", these words are unsat. Good luck in Iraq, don't get dead. Semper Fi!

You get a GWOT ribbon and medal just for going to ITB? WTF! That's bulls**t! How can this be? You haven't even faced the enemy of Al-Queda or an Iraqi insurgent? What's up with that?

By the way, welcome to the family Marine!

Dress Blue Alphas are to only display the Large Medals on the left side and ribbons not rating a medal on the right side, No badges are to be worn. This uniform is only prescribed for formal events.

Dress Blue Bravos is the dress blue blouse, but were ribbons and badges are allowed for wear on the left side of the uniform.

Dress Blue Charlie, is long sleeve and tie. Only ribbons will be worn, and the same goes for Dress Blue Deltas, which is the short sleeve shirt.

ITB does not rate the GWOT. becasue you are still at a school status. Once you get to your unit depending on which unit it is, you must be there for a minimum for 30 days before you rate it. And even then it is only the the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal (GWOTSM) not the Global war on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal (GWOTEM). Marine Security Guards also rate the GWOTSM.

Ma'am, I apologize for any confusion. While I did realize you are a female, my comment was not meant to be insulting, rather it was a compliment. Many female Marines today are too fussy about their hair. Regardless of gender, I feel a well kempt "hairdo" is in order. So, Again, great haircut.

As for my profile, I am about an hour into this site and am learning to navigate it. I have made some progress and updated some information.

I never intended to start on the wrong foot on this site...I mean, hell I paid for it. So, in time, maybe conclusions won't be jumped to.

All is good Sgt. :thumbup: I thought you were being a smart a$$ about my hair. Still have the short hairdo....alot easier to maintain...LOL! Haven't had long hair since I was a kid.
Anyway.....you didn't start out on the wrong foot. I just like to know who I'm talking to first.

Enjoy your time here on Leatherneck! :beer:
