    Boonie Cover

    Good evening Marines! I had a quick question regarding wearing the boonie cover. I was wondering if it was ok to wear your boonie cover in public with civvies,I was going to wear mine on the beach as I have heard others saying that they thought it was ok as long as you were a marine/vet and were wearing it in appropriate settings (ie camping, hunting etc.). What do you guys think?

    There is a thing called the Marine Corps Uniforms Manual, also known as MCO P1020.34G. That manual includes a paragraph which specifies what uniform items can be worn with civilian attire (you'll have to search for that paragraph).

    You can find this manual two ways. You can go to your admin shop and ask to read it there or, you can find it with a GOOGLE search and read it online. Or, you could always just ask your First Sergeant.

    Good luck Devil.

    Maybe even
    somebody gets in a snit over it
    tuck it between the back of your
    trousers being held up with your
    web belt and your back-
    while you lock the oxfords that go
    with your dress gear.

    *^ First Shirts do come in handy

    I have an idea. If you want to wear a boonie cover to the beach and are worried about the regs, I suggest buying a civilian boonie cover, in a plain color, or an obvious civilian cammo pattern (such as RealTree). Problem solved.

    In fact, your 1stSgt may think it's so cool, he'll ask you where you got the hat. Well, maybe not that part, but you definitely won't be seeing him about a non-reg use of a Marpat cover.

    I wouldn't go to the beach where your 1stSgt or any of his snitches go. Problem solved.

    FFS please try to not be such a boot. Are you looking for someone to thank you for your service or high five you cause you graduated boot camp? Yes you have the ability to wear the boonie to the beach but why?

    Just stick it on your gourd and march down any street or beach. Do you really expect someone to question it?
