Lets get all Shirley Temple retro, shall we?

There goes the Navy f*cking with "tradition" again.

First it was beards *for safety*
Then it was the two beer lunch.
Then it was pretty much all facial hair.

Then sometime they started getting a ribbon for just graduating boot camp
...And got to wear special covers when they graduated...or something.

Then -at least they went *back* to traditional jumpers from that stupid `80's ice cream truck uniform.
Then they changed from the water-survivable dungarees and boon-dockers to that stupid blue cammie BDUs they have to wear today.

Now they're changing the dress uniform to the Shirley Temple mode.

-Oh wait, I was wrong.
Even Shirley Temple used the right uniform:
So where have I seen that new look before? Oh- Yeah!

H/T to Bob.


  1. Not sure where you get the Navy boot camp ribbon from. The air force had one when I was in but there is no such Navy ribbon that I am aware of.

  2. I think it's a new thing.
    SiL got one for going through Marine boot camp two years ago.


I've had to enable moderation because some bots just can't stop sh1tting where other people want to live......kind of like Liberals.

It's either this or WV...
