    Ok so which branch has the best looking uniforms, got pics of each branch. Please try to leave out any bias toward your own branch. Even with that said i still have to give the Army's dress blues the nod. :shake:

    Why you want to compare Navy uniforms to policemen and bus drivers is beyond me.

    I'd have to say the Marine Corps Dress Blue Alpha is by far the best...followed EXTREMELY closely by Navy's Full Dress White.

    Service Dress:
    1. Air Force - gonna get grief for this I know, but being an Air Force Brat, some of my earliest memories are of my Dad in his dress uniform, and of course my mom all dressed up too. Can't go wrong with those early childhood memories!
    2. Marines - Hot. very hot. enough said.
    3. Army - close with Marines - since I am not big on a lot of bling.
    4. Coast Guard - those are pretty cool
    4. Navy - never understood those all white uniforms. They look good at weddings, that's about it.


    When Boss posts USCGA Cadet uniforms, I will vote on the SA's - do USMMA's get their own uniforms or do they wear the same as USNA?
    Jamzmom - what is the deal here?

    JAM, USMMA is Naval Reserve so yep. But the deal is, my kid could end up in any of these uniforms as USMMA is the only academy where you can go any branch of service, active or reserve, upon graduation. Most tend to go Navy though.

    Ah, that middle picture is the best part of parades. Even that company's commander knows that guy looks rediculous.

    That's a pic of the company guide running ahead of the company to mark the proper spot for the company to march towards.

    Upon marching towards their spot, the company commander would call "Guide of the right platoon on line!" and the person in the front rank, furthest to the company commander's right (normally the tallest person) would response "Aye aye, sir!" and then sprint ahead, chopping like a plebe to the company's marker in the grass and stand at attention there. If you look carefully, you'll see that the company to the right is missing a person in the front row - that's where he came from. The company will then alter their marching direction slightly to line up with the guide.

    Only if you give them one point for each type of rank insignia. Then their score is too high for them to count for themselves. :thumb:
