That would be a no. You are not obligated to wear your uniform for non military activities.
navymich said:Yes, you can get your whites online. However, initial issue is still done through clothing stores.
Springroll said:I love seeing the whites and would love my husband to wear them more often, but as most of you have said, they are a pain.
I loved the PX in S.D too....was there in 1999 ;D
CallOfDuty said:...sorry guys....another question. Speaking of weddings, my best friend is getting married in September, now that I am a CF member, am I obligated to wear my Dress uniform?
Wolfmann said:So P Res pers should probably
telltheir stupervision of their intention to wear their uniform...
Wolfmann said:For private functions, no. There is a new CANFORGEN (or something similar) that encourages CF Members to wear their uniforms to public and/or civilian functions, and it applies unconditionally to Reg F as there is generally no restrictions to them wearing their uniforms.
I vaguely remember the message, but it seemed to be directed to Reg F. So P Res pers should probably tell their stupervision of their intention to wear their uniform, as a cross your "I's" and dot your "T's" sort of C-Y-A thing. But I don't know any Reservist that's been jacked up for wearing their uniform to a wedding without asking pretty-please.
As always, mileage may vary.
airmich said:I suggest asking, it might come off better. This is a great time to use a request form or even (for the jr bodies) to learn how to write a memo. Something simple and basic, but the higher ups like to see it.
IN HOC SIGNO said:Mess Dress, I was told, is evening apparel for wear "in the Mess." at the time Service Dress was the CF greens which were not exactly "Pusser" for us Navy guys.
My Niece is getting married next year and as she is RC I'm just going to be Uncle IHS rather than Padre IHS and I fully intend to wear high collar whites for the occasion and as per the CANFORGEN urging us to wear uniform I don't intend to ask my COs permission. As her "intended" is RCMP and all those guys will be in Red Serge it'll compliment well me thinks.
M Feetham said:Too true my freind, 3 years ago in NYC, me and some buddies went to a bar on Statten Island, when I went up to order my beer the guy wouldn't take my money. It was very cool. I sailed on the Saskatchewan in the early 90's. Just one trip but it was my first one in the Navy, I didn't even have a trade then, I was a PAT, just out of Cornwallis. We went to Vancouver/Gastown/No. 5 Orange. Fun,Fun,Fun.
