If you could take ONE part of AR 670-1 out of the regulation what would it be?

I have to agree with the Major why have pockets if you can’t put your hands in them to keep them warm.

Anything relating to the wearing of a cape. No one should be allowed to wear a cape...ever...under any circumstance...unless you're at a Halloween party...dressed as Dracula. Other than that - no capes.

PFC Charles Sanders - That's what I'm talking about. Exactly. Maybe there used to be a reason to wear a cape, but now...you could get sucked into a jet engine...or fall off the stage when one of your dancers snags it.

COL (Join to see) - All that follows presumes that the only outer garment permitted by AR 670-1 is still the "boat" cloak. The last time I was dressed in "white tie" I was no where near the air intakes of a jet engine.

CPT (Join to see), that's the kind of thinking that gets people sucked into jet engines.

Oh well, I am very fatalistic. ;-) Nevertheless if the Marines find it to be acceptable for wear, that's good enough for me. Their uniform looks very nice and I never heard anyone confuse their mess dress with anything other than a uniform.

Boonie caps can on occasion affect your ability to hear the enemy (especially at night).

CPT (Join to see) - We in the SF always used 'boonie' hats. and it does not hinder your ability to hear. In fact it 'cups' the noise onto your ear much better.

I was an 18A and I usually used a PC at night whenever in Europe or other non-"buggy" places. They taught us back in the dark ages that hearing was not enough, but directional perception was enhanced by a bare ear. The new tech may have solved that problem for this crop of troopers.

MSG William Hesser - Absolutely MSG Hesser. That stuff about hindering your hearing is B.S. If worn right, or even wrong I would guess. I wore mine most of the time in Nam and heard every cough, sneeze, muffled voice, brush movement. It's the only thing I have left of my gear. It's sweat and salt water stained, frayed, and ugly as hell. But My boonie hat and I are inseperable. We both made it home, and I still wear it on rainy days when I walk my dog. It's more than a hat to me.
