Does anyone have a list of all th different Uniforms at the USAFA??? Pictures would be great!
trench coat thingy..
DANG!! Thats a lot of uni's!
Anyone have any Pic's???
What exactly are these two things?
PC Gear: Physical Conditioning. I.e. Sweats, Shorts, shirts, etc...
Trench Coat thingy: Just a long overcoat that goes over your other clothes.
Is there a long wintry cape-like thing too, an overcoat of some kind, or is that the "trench coat thingy?"
Not sure. I'm old; but in the time prior to Al Gore inventing the internet and when dinosaurs roamed the earth; I had 4 outer coats. Field Jacket/P-Coat style; Parka, Heavy over-coat/Trench Coat style, and a light weight trench coat style (Used mostly over "Blues".) Again, that was in the 70's and not at the academy. I didn't look at a lot of my son's uniforms; but the "Trench Coat" could be more of an outer coat when wearing blues. Unless they are referring to the "P-Coat" style coat. I'm sure hornet or one of the other current cadets can clarify. later... mike....
Not much difference Christcorp.
One long coat meant as an overgarment for rainy weather in blues.
Another long coat to go over service dress in cold weather (feels like it weighs 40 pounds...)
Thanks... Definitely sounds like they are the same since the last Ice Age. later... mike....
Are uniforms issued during or after BCT?
Here's what I could find. (Most of these are of my friend at the AFA)
(Doolies [Freshman] will wear this instead of the BDU)
Service Dress (Yes that is the Chief Master Sargent of the Air Force)
Blues (Yes those are the Thunderbirds)
Last but not least... Global Engagement Chemical Warfare Suit
Thanks for the pictures but the global chemical warfare suit your kidding right?
Parade dress, service dress and flight suit are my favorite, they truly show what the Air Force is about (to me).
Question: When plebes come home for winter vaca, or thanksgiving, or whatever, which uniform do they have to wear? Do they HAVE to wear them? and what happens if they don't wear them?
I love the ABU's the new camo for all branchs is so sick
We aren't plebes
The uniform is service dress. You have to leave the academy in Service Dress and come back in Service dress.
Doolies! wow sorry lol I don't know what I was thinking.
But that's cool? what is the purpose of that?...just wondering.
Mr. Holland from those pictures happens to be my element NCO living across the hall lol.
Yah, these are all off facebook.
I was reading somewhere that fourth-class cadets must wear uniforms at all times, even on leave. Does that mean when a cadet comes home, he still must wear his/her uniform?
