As we all know AR 670-1 went through a major update last year and DA Pam 670-1 was released as the guide for wear and appearance of uniforms. Both the AR and the DA Pam were updated again this year. The first update addressed the ACU and the proper wear of the uniform. The 1 July release added verbiage for the OCP. When the update was made I noticed the verbiage was added” The sleeve cuffs on the combat uniform coat are not authorized to be rolled inside the coat.” I have corrected many Soldiers for lower enlisted to officers (as an NCO should and always with tack). I had one E7 tell me I was “nit picking” and a Captain tell me” last I saw it stated as long as it does not break the camouflage pattern”. How do you all feel?

Laziness *IS* poor leadership!
Be the example and set the standard - I say good for you and keep up the good work! Tell that E7 who told you it was “nit picking” that the reason you want the uniform right is the same reason you want everything else right - including the weapon sights - is it "nit-picking" if you want your sights dead on?

To lead, you have to set the example. Being sloppy is not setting a good example or setting you and your unit up for success

It is the responsibility of soldiers and leaders at all levels to stay current and informed with changing rules and regulations. The last five years has produced a number of changing regulations (Especially in Army Aviation) that make it difficult to keep up, but dedicated leaders will do so. I think mentorship is a key theme in regard to this issue. To be an effective leader or mentor one has to be proactive (opposite of lazy) in all professional facets. I just dealt with the rolling of sleeves last week and I am happy to say I was not met with the same opposition. If it is written in black and white you are not "nit picking," rather promoting good order and discipline.
