Marines Announce Uniform Change

Marines no longer will wear the venerable desert-camouflage uniforms. The service issued an All-Marine announcement Dec. 8, calling for all Marines and who serve with them to switch to the woodland Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform (MCUUU). Seasonal uniform changes still will take place. When daylight saving time returns next March 12, Marines will be allowed to roll up the sleeves of their designated Service “C” uniforms. Until then, it’s sleeves down on their Service “B” uniforms.
