    Is there a preference on the type of shirt stays that my son needs for the NROTC? Should they be a certain color or colors?
    Also, he said that he needs a briefcase to carry on days that he wears his uniform. Are there specifics for the type of briefcase? Leather or canvas?
    Is there anything else that he should have (that is not provided)? He already completed Orientation Week so we have that gear in place.
    Thanks in advance. Go Navy!

    BlueMom: these are great questions for you DS to ask upperclassmen or the Officer Cadre.

    My two cents: any shirt stay would be appropriate. There was actually a discussion on shirt stay preferences recently (you can search and find it). I am surprised about the briefcase question. Typically the requirement is a conservative color backpack which is carried rather than worn when in uniform. I am sure some current midshipmen or parents can provide more recent information.

    Regarding anything else: I suggest a good watch with alarm, stopwatch, light, etc. Think Casio or Ironman.

    When my daughter is in uniform, she has to carry a black bag. For her unit, it can be any type of bag, as long as it is black and carried in the hand and not worn over the shoulder.
