Ok, I'm as sick as most of you are about talking about the multiple service solutions for camoflauge (all terrible except Multicam in my opinion).  Navy "Aquaflauge" is no different.  Talk about a uniform that rivals the Dungaree bell bottoms for tastelessness.  Why are the Devil Dogs one of the only services to get the uniform all kinds of right?  I guess if you fall over the side of the ship, there are advantages in blending. And maybe not.

Anyway, now sailors can sport these bad boys off base.  Read more below.

Jonathan Greenert announced expanded occasion for wear and updated policies for the Navy Working Uniform (NWU) Type I, II and III in NAVADMIN 366/11, released Dec. 2.

There has been a lot of interest throughout the fleet regarding expanding the locations that Sailors can wear the Navy's working uniform. Several weeks ago the CNO asked Vice Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mark Ferguson and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Rick West to take a look at the Navy Working Uniform policy.

"Following their review, I am proud to report that we are extending the wear policy of the working uniform to improve the practicality while ensuring professionalism and maintaining its value," said Greenert. "I want my shipmates to look sharp, be uniform and have the quality they deserve."

The NAVADMIN expands the authorized stops for which NWUs may be worn when commuting to and from home and work, and to allow wear of the NWU during selected events when authorized by regional commanders or commanding officers.

These policies will take effect Jan. 1 for all continental United States, Hawaii and Guam commands.

NWU wear is authorized for commuting and all normal tasks, such as stops at child care centers, gas stations, off-base shopping, banking, at the DMV, and dining before, during and after the workday. Since NWUs are not a liberty uniform, consumption of alcohol while off-base in the NWUs is not permitted. Area or regional commanders may further restrict this policy within their geographic limits.
