Marine Utilities on non Marines
Heres something ive been thinking about and that has been kinda irking me. How do you ladies and gentlemen feel about people who are not Marines wearing our utilities? Im talking like Poolees Rotc what have you? I have been seeing this alot lately, Ive been seeing pictures of poolees with Utilities, and there is one that is somehow allowed to show up to our detatchment PT's and he wears utilities when we do boots n Utes.

So what is the big deal? You can buy them in most surplus stores. If you have a problem with it, take it out behind a building and knock them on their azz, otherwise ignore it. If your NCO's are not taking care of it. then it must not be a big deal. New Corps.

You are going to find a lot of things that both Marines and cives do that will drive you nuts. Like burning our stars and strips. The surpream court has ruled it is a farm of free spesch.

Well, at the end of the day, there's one thing they don't have. The actual title, Marine. To me it's just a uniform, but of course I have pride in wearing it. It's just symbolization to the title we have, in my honest opinion. I don't exactly like it either, but civilians will be civilians.

Those in MROTC/JMROTC do rate to wear USMC utilities. The MARPAT issued to the USMC are made by American Apparel Inc. Look carefully at most of the so called MARPAT that paint ballers, airsofters and others wear. Most of the time, they are not 'official' USMC uniforms and don't even have the EGA on left upper pocket of the blouse and several EGA w/ USMC underneath throughout the trousers and blouse. Look carefully on your uniform. Plus, it's a cammo pattern which is based off a Canadian pattern CADAT. As long as they don't say that they are Marines/Corpsmen when they are not, it's not an issue. In 20-30 yrs the USMC will change to a new pattern.

Our uniform regulations do not pertain to civilians and they are not subject to the UCMJ. We may not like them wearing something they do not rate (in our eyes anyway) but they are not breaking any laws that I know of. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

TN TOP. 100% correct. UCMJ not applicable to civilians. As many are aware, civilians found wearing unearned fruit salad can get away...until he steps into a dark alley and trips on a footlocker. Don't know how it got in the alley...
