    How strictly is this enforced?

    "Conservative ornamentation on frames and lenses. Authorize conservative
    ornamentation on non-prescription sunglasses or eyeglasses, frames may be
    black or brown material or gold or silver wire. Brand name glasses may be
    worn with small logo on frames or lenses. Logo must be same color as frames
    or lenses. Conservative wrap-around sunglasses may be worn. Conservative,
    clear, slightly tinted or photosensitive lenses. Conservative lenses and frames
    (faddish styles and mirrored lenses prohibited). No sunglasses (to include
    darkened photosensitive lenses) in formation. Not worn around the neck or on
    top/back of head or exposed hanging on the uniform. Eyeglasses/sunglasses
    will be worn in the manner for which they were made. "

    Is it true that these would be accepted...

    I have seen all sorts of styles of glasses in cadet pictures so I just want to make sure I get an acceptable pair!

    Thanks!

    Not sure about what AFA allows but here is a supplier for military oakleys. If you are a gov't employee/military you get oakley for 50% off :)

    Since you are on line currently I take it that you are a candidate for 14, and not a 13 cadet that didn't change it.

    My suggestion is: don't put the cart before the horse. I am not talking about being appointed, I am talking about the fact that the regs could change. You might purchase an item that the AF in 3 mos(end of fiscal yr) and then they re-write it to not include what you just purchased.
