You obviously don't care to know what Marines still do to this day because all you can do is trash your own heritage.

    This isn't a pizzing match at all, this is me hitting black from the 500yard line and you wetting your depends. Had you come in here or any other thread that you make ignorant comments on with some reasoning behind your words and some researched facts behind that reasoning then I'd be willing to hear you and possibly agree.
    You are right, you are not my son. I would never claim you as such. My sons respect their elders and are much older than you are. Fact is I have grandchildren who are older than you.

    You can hit the black at 500 yds, WOW, what a killer you are. FTO might be a good idea if you closed this thread.

    My Drill Instructors told us to avoid wearing your uniform off base and especially when traveling bc it makes you a target. Yes I know this thread is probably long dead.

    I love to get dressed up and go find a women,it was the way I was brought up I couldnt look like a a ragamuffin. My mom alway taught me to dress neat and look neat.

    WOW, doc. I haven't heard ragamuffin in a LONG time. But there is something to be said about looking Your best when Your looking for Ladies !!! Or taking Your Wife or Girlfriend out on the Town. My Granddaughters get a kick out of it when I treat them to a outing. And I get cleaned-up for them...

    Old Marine I can assure you that this guy is not representative of the way Marines of this generation are supposed to act. Nothing a trip behind the hut couldn't cure. In fact I personally would be happy to do it.

    If you want to see many examples of inappropriate civilian attire, just visit Jacksonville, NC. On weekends, at the home improvements stores, large box stores and just around the area in general, you will see active duty Marines in a host of inappropriate civilian attire. More disturbing is that many o them are SNCO's and Officers. Even more disturbing is how many SNCO's and Officers see these violations and look the other way.

    Just for my own edification and clarification; what exactly are the regs concerning the wearing of civies during off duty hours? It has been fifty(50) years since I was governed by Marine regulations. However, I witnessed changes in 1986 when my son joined the Marines. It was lax compared to when I was in. Too lax IMO.
