    It is fair to say that they will change again (in some way) before the current applicants graduate from the USMA!

    I don't believe so. The new SMA (if you didn't know, SMA Dailey just recently took over for SMA Chandler) has said before that he was looking at this change when he was sworn in.

    It's for real. Updated memo explains what is changing - sleeves will be authorized, along with ring tattoos, but no other hand/neck/head tattoos. No limit on the #, placement, etc. as long as they're not visible in ASUs and not offensive. It's a good change.

    Hopeful cadets - it does NOT go into effect until the new 670-1 is published, so don't run out and get that sleeve just yet.
