If only I had the power to change our policy on wearing the dress uniform. That always does look bad. Whenever my cadets do a Color Guard, me or my Soldiers (and yes cadets too) are always in dress uniform. If I want to stay for the game or function, I bring a change of clothes.

I agree with you completely- the only time to make those assumptions are when there is indeed a local policy against it, joe is "hanging out" at the mall with buddies in uniform (all too common), or he is at a bar.
Agreed

I've never thought about it before. But I absolutely agree that it doesn't look as presentable. In the picture it looks like the guys on the right lost a bet or something. Combat boots/ dress shoes, sure.. like peanut butter and jelly.
