Ignore those earlier responses. Absolutely DO NOT travel in uniform unless required to.
The only times you should travel in uniform is if you are specifically directed to travel in dress uniform (you won't be), or your unit chartered a plane and you are traveling in your duty uniform.
Absolutely, do not ever travel through civilian airports unless you are directed to. For instance, traveling from Afghanistan on R&R.

MSgt Cynthia Bishop - After 9/11 they stopped requiring travel in uniform unless you were on a military charter flight.

MSgt Cynthia Bishop - I was working at Great Lakes (Navy Boot) on 9/11 and they sent me to the airport to tell the boots to take their uniforms off and change into their nasty civvies that had been in a bag for two months. LOL I felt bad for the kids.

Maj Dale Smith - I dont even think MAC flights require it anymore on a PCS. But they dont usually send you MAC anymore unless you going overseas to a base that doesnt have a civilian airport.

Please, for the love of God, DO NOT!

Staff duty is going to know who you are, because you'll look like a private and you'll have your ID and orders. But if you really want to arrive in them, bring them in your carryon and change at the airport before you drive to your post.

SSG Terry O'Donal - I wore my uniform through the 1990's and past 2001 - in the USA, never on a civilian flight overseas (except when I came home from Japan in 1993 and was being met. When I travel overseas, active or retired, I leave my military gear/look at home and have civilian looking gear. I travel a lot and have two sets of travel gear: domestic and overseas. I even keep my overseas items, passport, adaptors, etc. in my blue backpack carry on.

MSgt Gilbert Jones - OUTSTANDING!
I was responding to someone who said he (on AD?) didn't carry his CAC unless in uniform. Sorry if I seemed to disrespect you.

Always check your PCS Orders and flight orders -They are quite specific about what you will be wearing. It might say, 'Military Uniform Required' or 'Must travel in Class A; etc...'
