Blood strip for blues trousers
I joined the MCL a few months ago and volenteered to do color guard. Of course I then attempted to put on my charlie shirt and the trousers from my blues. Well the trousers I could not get over my butt and the shirt I could not button. So I went to ebay and found both of under $40. with shipping. I need to add the blood strip to my trousers but I am not sure excately where it is placed on the trousers. Any help is really appreciated.

Can't help you out with the placement of the blood stripe on your trousers.....but, my brother who's a Sr.Vice Commandant in the MCL, doesn't wear his Charlie blouse, and neither do any of the other officers or MCL members. They wear a white shirt with all of the necessary ribbons, badges, and patches.
My brother is the 3rd one in from the left, standing next to they guy with the ribbon around his neck.
This is a recent pic of some of our MCL members from our Memorial Day parade.

Gotta love MCO P1020.34G
4009. SLACKS/TROUSER STRIPES (OFFICER/NCO)
1. Male officers will wear a stripe of ornamented gold lace down the outer seam of each leg of the evening dress trousers.
2. General officers will wear a 2-inch-wide scarlet stripe down the outer seam of each leg of blue dress trousers/slacks.
3. Field and company grade officers will wear a 1-1/2-inch-wide scarlet stripe down the outer seam of each leg of blue dress trousers/slacks.
4. SNCOs and NCOs will wear a 1-1/8-inch-wide scarlet stripe down the outer seam of each leg of blue dress trousers/slacks.
5. Stripes will be sewn onto trousers as directed in the Uniform Fitting and
Alterations Manual (TM-10120-15/1), which requires that the stripe finish at or in the waist seam. However, stripes that were previously sewn so that the top of the stripe was finished over the top of the waistband are authorized for wear until such time as the trousers/stripes require replacement. Blue dress stripes will be made of Marine Corps standard scarlet cloth and will be sewn with red silk thread.

If the long sleeve (Bravo) shirt is worn, the Marine Corps khaki necktie and Marine Corps or Marine Corps
League gold tie bar is worn."
Only the dress blue trousers with red NCO stripe and the Marine Corps web belt and brass buckle are to be

The rest of the uniform, the shoes, socks, patches and name tag are the same as is worn on the Undress

Yes, I know that, and I thought I made a post with the correction. The order went into affect Aug 7, 2009 and at the time of my previous post, dated July 3, 2009, they were allowed.
And you may want to fill out all of your profile so that the Marines here know who they are talking to.

Doc I've been living with a squid for 17 years and have yet to see her wearing a uniform containing a blood stripe.

You're right, Robert!! It's been so long, I thought Squids had a red stripe on their shoulder, for being at sea.....DUH!! That's what happens when your memory gets fried with today's prescription meds!!!
