Okay thanks!Take them out. And yes you can get your ears pierced. USNA has regs on allowable earrings for uniforms.
Yea crazy right lolI hope this isn't too politically incorrect, but, you have your nipples pierced but not your ears? I must be out of touch.
I've been mostly on the USMA forum lately, but thought I would come over here to stir up some Army/Navy banter. This thread is ripe for that, but I will resist.
In-uniform (key caveat) ear piercing location for the wear of female officer gold ball studs of the prescribed diameter is the traditional center of the lobe location, not anywhere else on the ear. ...
It's all good. You fight for freedom; aught to be able to express some. To each his/her own.Yea crazy right lol
Capt MJ or NavyHoops- In the Navy, is the wear of earrings dependent on uniform?
In the Army earrings cannot be worn with ACU's or PT uniform but can with Class A and B (service, dress, and mess) uniforms. Getting ears pierced after joining the Army is difficult because you can't wear the earrings for extended periods required to keep the holes open initially.
I'm active duty, have been for three years. It hasn't bothered me yet.Well, a 17 or 18 yr old girl that has pierced nipples (who's gonna see um?) may get culture shock at the academy, especially the first year. If you're such a free spirit, have you thought this whole military thing out?
You're right. If I receive an appointment, I plan on taking them out.Oh Maplerock...you are showing your age. It is a new day--and the services have always attracted young men and women who like to take risks. Look at the evolving tattoo policies. However, you are right that EASis might raise a few eyebrows and be the subject of a little chatter amongst her peers if she showered with piercings in-but I bet she has the good sense to follow the policy and is up for the challenge if she is selected by the admissions committee and approved by DODMERB. It is true we are a relatively conservative crew, after all we are the establishment, but in honor of LTG Moore's passing...'We were soldiers once and young...'
