Every service member is guilty from time to time of violating their branches respective uniform policy. The one that really gets me for some reason is when a top is too short. I can't stand seeing Soldiers walk around in tiny tops.

I will never forget seeing a brand new - graduated yesterday Sailor, attending the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Chicago in his NWUs and drinking a beer. I, still only an E3 at the time, lost my mind - yet maintained a level of professionalism as his parents were there and we were in public. He locked up, having no idea what my rank/paygrade was and then immediately blamed his RDCs - "Well, Warrant told me we were authorized to wear these". I looked at his father and said, "Sir, it's a direct violation for your son to be drinking in that uniform or wearing it out in public. You need to get him back to base or in some civi's" - This was before we were authorized to wear NWUs out in town. Regardless, I'll never forget it.

Had this happen here in Dayton, two 1Lts were at a Barack Obama rally at Wright State University in uniform. I was still on active duty at the time, and after I approached them and took their photos with my phone, they left in a huff. One actually said I didn't have the right to tell them they couldn't be there in uniform. When I explained to them the problem, they got even more upset, but they left.

I attended a book signing by General Powell. I called to find out if it would be appropriate to wear my Uniform. I was told not to because there may be protesters there. You would not believe the number of officers that were there in full uniform.

This summer its the new rolled sleeves. Some Soldiers just can't seem to get it right and it looks ridiculous. The usual one for me is female hairstyles and nails. We have a lot of them that think they can just do whatever they want and not adhere to regulations. And when you try and correct them they complain its an EO issue.

I hate seeing males with a "shaving profile" and yet they line up their facial hair and or SHAVE their heads! I've been in the medical field for over 30 years (24 of that in uniform). I've read the shaving profile. It does not specify between shaving part or all of the head/face. it says NO SHAVING. If you can shave your head, you can shave your face. If you can line-up your facial hair, you sure as heck can shave it ALL off! Worst part is commanders allowing this.

x2 on the female hairstyles and nails. Also, disregarding purse style and color.

Sort of an opposite where a regulation gets to me.

I HATE the "no hands in pockets" rule. Loathe it. I never know what to do with my hands while standing still. Hate it even worse when it's cold out. I don't see it as unprofessional, and really think the regulation and our professional appearances could do without the rule.

Same reason you get your regulation haircut: appearance.

SFC (Join to see) - On the flip side you walk past an Officer and render them the salute and they don't return it because they feel they don't have to and their hands are not full. Seen it happen. Oh and it would take no more effort than if hands were out of the pockets to salute.

LCDR T.J. Smith - We have "hand warmer pockets" on the NWU parka. Pockets literally intend to have hands in them.
