I just received orders for DCC and I leave fairly soon. This school has a packing list and I am getting mixed reviews on whether or not I should buy everything before I get there or not. I was on AAEFES and I'm noticing the it doesn't have a sizing chart for most items and that some of the items I need are out of stock. Would it be best to buy what I can before hand or just wait for everything at once?

Are these items that you can't buy at a used or military surplus store? I was able to buy used ocp uniforms in the earlier Style and they were half price compared to the new a ocp style and the pockets like the AC you and much easier to use than the current ocp pockets. I've been having a hard time finding shoulder boards for my ranking civil Affairs and one lady they're at the clothing sales said to order it directly from Vanguard

My CAPT chief just got his bird and took over the. BDE. Maybe I can talk him out of his old boards and mail them to you.

SFC (Join to see) sure, I'd appreciate it. I can reimburse him for postage since it's going to be shipped to Edmonton Alberta Canada. Let him know soon because I would like it shipped so I can wear the shoulder boards on November 11th. Care Remembrance Day in Canada is a big deal. My wife's great-grandfather was a sniper in World War 1 with over a hundred and sixty kills. He didn't make it and died in no man's land but he has to Canadian Legion can teens named after him here in Alberta. Talk to me offline once you get confirmation. I can also reimburse him by mail with a check from USAA.

Thanking you in advance for your suggestion and offer!

Question do you live near a base that has Army uniforms? if you do,I would just purchase it ahead of time.
The reason you get mixed reviews is that sometimes the clothing stores at bases where DCC or BOLC are located run out of uniforms because of the influx of students. Which can leave you without a uniform.
You can roll the dice and see if you can get special pricing but you run a high risk of not getting a uniform.

1LT (Join to see) - you can easily get AAEFES to request the size you want and more than likely they can transfer inventory from Macdill or Patrick over to you. I would say last resort I would just take a trip to Macdill it maybe 3 hours but at least you ensure 100% you will have a uniform.

CPT Enrique M. my problem is the time restraints. I leave very soon. I will call them in the morning to see if I can at least get the uniforms.
