Better to avoid wearing the uniform on any Civilian aircraft / flight if simply for OpSec reasons. Exceptions: If it's a Chartered flight by The DoD.

CPL Joseph Elinger - Whatever happened to common sense??? Why I'm afraid that ship sailed some time ago. Such a thing is not taught or encouraged these days, from the baby cribs to the corporate offices and everything inbetween.

You can't even wear them to the PX on most posts, why in the wide, wide world of sports would you want to wear them on a plane??

CPL Armyvet32 Boresz - LOL! It's that "Wal-Martian generation & mindset" where anything goes in-public. All those videos of goofy-dressed & looking people shopping at Walmart is pretty much true. I myself have seen such "displays" (that I wished I hadn't).

For Marines it's a no go. Army could be different, but I highly doubt it. PT uniforms are strictly for PT.

SFC Robert Walton - You are probably right but I flew into and out of San Francisco International Airport, SeaTac Airport, Spokane Airport, San Diego, Norfolk and Atlanta over my career. I was , and am, proud of my uniform, who I am an who I was. Was never ashamed of my work - I saved lives and rendered aid. Guess I lucked out

LCDR Robert Russnogle - Yes SIR: I am sure each and everyone found different reactions when flying. I was always Proud to wear the Uniform that so many of us earned the right of. I only met evil at two airports and three time that was LA. Cali, and Utah other wise it wasn't a problem.
Here they mention PT. Uniform that was a problem I can remember back in the day that PT Uniform was Fatigues ,and combat boots, no blouse, no head gear. I can only imagine what you would have went through in that Uniform in a Airport back in the day I am sure it would not have been Pleasant. But I had very few complaints back then. Thank you for your Service SIR and welcome home.

At the time I would have welcomed a confrontation. By my third deployment I would have been happy to take my anger out on someone - lol. I was a "poor baby" at the time but I found that doing the job I was trained to do and the one I was best at served me well

Cpl Justin Goolsby always heard it’s a no-go after PT hours. Air Force on the other hand, I’ve seen them wearing PTs until noon before. Probably only one “bad apple”, but behavior like that makes the whole service look bad.
