No emblem on Dress Blue collar?
I just saw a brand new Marine Private in his issued blues. Looked pretty good not much out of place... But then I noticed his collar. Buttons!!?? What happend to the Eagle Globe and Anchor? He said it was issued that way.

My blues have the golden Eagle globe and anchor on the collar, I mean you have to put it on there but you get issued them.

Definently not issued that way, he was mistaken or just plain dumb. I was just issued mine (graduated last friday) and had to put the Eagle Globe and Anchors on the collar. The Eagle Globe and Anchors are issued to you at the same time, you just have to put them on there.

There have been so many uniform changes as late though,....WMs barracks covers, PT gears, boots, shoes. I would triple guess myself in that spot, but I wouldn't let im get away with it twice.
I would tell im
"God knows what you are doing. As an NCO in the Corps, he doesn't approve, nor do I"

We had a kid fresh out of boot, showed up to help our Toys for Tots without the EGA on his blues. At least he admitted he forgot to put them on and didn't come up with some lie or worthless excuse

God would not have minded if you corrected one of his guards at his house.

iT'S REAL SAD TO HEAR ABOUT MARINES JUST OUT OF BOOT CAMP FORGETTING WHAT WE WHERE TAUGHT. TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR UNIFORM AND IN YOURSELF, DONT FORGET WHAT YOU WHERE TAUGHT ON THE DEPOT WAS REPEATED TO ME BY MY DRILL INSTRUCTORS. ALL OF 3D PHASE IS USUALLY HOW TO WEAR YOUR UNIFORMS. JUST RECENTLY I WAS STATIONED IN NSA MERIDIAN IN MISSISSIPPI FOR MOS SCHOOL. NEW GROUP OF MARINES FRESH FROM MCT GETTING READY TO CHEK IN, IN THERE ALPHAS.ONE WAS JUST ALL F***ED UP 1- WITH NOW EAGLE, GLOBE AND ANCHORS ON THE COLLARS. 2- HIS GARRISON COVER WITH DUSK ON THE FRAME. 3- TIE NOT DONE SAID HE FORGOT HOW TO DO A FULL WINDSOR KNOT. FIRST THING IS FIRST I PULLED HIM A SIDE CHEWED HIM OUT AND TOLD HIM ITS OK MARINE ALL YOU NEED IS SOME GOOD SUPERVISION AND AN NCO TO SQUARE YOU AWAY. TOOK HIM TO MY ROOM, I WAS TAUGHT TO HAVE SPARES OF EVERY UNIFORM MATERIAL. SO I HANDED HIM EAGLE GLOBE AND ANCHORS, DID HIS TIE THAN UNDID IT AND MADE HIM DO IT TO MAKE SURE HE KNEW HOW TO TIE IT. LET HIM BORROW MY COVER. I WASN'T GOING TO LET HIM START HIS JOURNEY IN OUR CORPS LOOKING LIKE A BAG OF A**.

Many new junior enlisted marines AND EVEN NEWLY COMMISSIONED OFFICERS are nervous when they first check in anywhere. Sometimes they are in a hurry and forget a few things... As long as they get squared away before they officially check in then they are good, if not then they will get locked on quick. I work At IPAC and i've seen my fair share of messed up Marines... Just pull them aside and help them out... funny thing is i've had 2nd Lt's standing at parade rest for me when I help fix them.
