Fellow service members that are commenting on this discussion, please read the regulation that is listed above. He clearly lists an Army regulation and is asking if it is allowed for males to wear earrings. Responding to the posts with either "hear say" or your "opinion" on why its not authorized is inconclusive to those who are looking for information or guidance. Please provide a reference or two when responding to these posts, a well educated NCO/Officer can better lead our younger service members.
AR 670-1 has provided males 3 circumstances in which they cannot attach, affix, or display objects, articles, jewelry, or ornamentation to or through the skin:<br>1. in uniform;<br>2. in civilian clothes on-duty;<br>3. in civilian clothes off-duty;<br>and continues to clarify that this includes earrings for male Soldiers.<br><br>I guess we can expect to start seeing a lot of nude male Soldiers running around with their overwhelming desire to wear earrings.<br><br>It would be even easier if AR 670-1 just said "Males are not authorized wear earrings or body piercings of any type."<br>
