Effective March 9th, 2014, rolled sleeves make a comeback! The signature look of the Marine Corps utility uniform has been resurrected from the dead!
If you visit the Facebook page of The First Lady of The Marine Corps, Bonnie Amos. There is a post where she says, "we miss our husbands' GUNS." In that same post, you'll see a message from the Commandant.
"WE HEAR YOU MARINES!
Because of the persistence of you, my Sergeants and Corporals, this evening I am publishing a MARADMIN that will return us to SLEEVES UP status when wearing our Desert CAMMIES in non-combat areas. This will take effect on 9 March when we transition to our summer warmer weather uniforms. Get the word out Marines.
Thank you for your leadership in some very challenging times!!!
-General James Amos, Commandant of the Marine Corps
