    When my DD gets to the CGA in July she will enlist (for Prep School) and will be issued all her CG uniforms......I believe for enlistment purposes these are a no charge item...

    Then next summer she will report for SWAB summer, will they issue NEW uniforms again? or will she bypass that since she already has them?

    (I am unsure if the CG uniforms are different for enlisted compared to Officers)

    Good questions

    Good questions and ones I would probably be able to answer better in a couple of months :biggrin:. For CGAS, your DD be issued her uniforms. My D received shorts & CGAS T-shirts & socks (even though they were told to bring them) and part way thru the week, they got to wear their issued uniform (I remember she said she was SO EXCITED the day they told them to report in uniform!). They were not dress uniforms. I think she got two sets. I imagine when reporting for Swab Summer, they will get new t-shirts at least because they won't have CGAS on the back. The shorts may be the same. Since I haven't seen her package, I'm not sure if it will tell her to bring anything different than the regular appointment kids - we will see. Of course, when she gets to Prep School, she will get ALL the uniforms associated with that school -- I think I saw my D in 4 different uniforms in one afternoon for Parent's Weekend:smile:! Those uniforms you buy and then have to figure what to do with at the end of the year. Thank goodness, at MMI at least, if you pass the Army PFE, they give you a refund that covers most of the uniform costs.
