Our casual uniform and accessories are
an example of Marine Corps pride
- tasteful and subdued.
We require that the uniform always be worn in a manner that would not bring discredit upon the Marine Corps or the Marine Corps Veterans Association.

(1) Military funerals, memorial services, weddings, and inaugurals.

record, within three months after discharge.
Wearing of the uniform or any part thereof at any other time or for any purpose is prohibited.
