I always liked the seafarers... I got out of the Coast Guard and used them until they wore out ... Worked for Uncle a bit in the ware house ... Now not the ones they military gave you... The ones you would buy with the neat bell bottom on it...

I was glad that the Coast Guard gave us a Donald Duck hat to wear ... Everyone would think you were in the Navy when you wore a Dixie Cup... We did use the Dixies for work...

We were delighted when the orders came down to "survey" them.

I wonder if they still "spit shine" leather gear in the military?
Not too much to spit shine anymore. Boots are suede finish and everybody buys coroframs for dress shoes. Other than at Basic, not too much shining anymore. Before I got out, I had a young Specialist say (behind my back of course) "The Sergeant Major is a little too much black boot army, isn't he?"

He pushed some dirt.

Navy Dress Blues with the 13 button bottoms. Pain to undo if you had to use the restroom in a hurry.

The wool ones just before the seasonal change over to summer service. Always done by calendar not temperature. Waugh!

My dress blues... In the Navy the pants had thirteen buttons on them.... When I was at Camp Lejeune, I didn't wqear the "Marine Reg Uniform" I chose to keep my Navy standards, and wear our own uniform. Since I was a line corpsman with a grunt unit, I always went to the Marine Ball every year with my fellas. I was their doctor, psychologist and sometimes when need be, their chaplain. Anyway, this uniform was not Alcohol Intake Friendly when you gotta hit the head!

U Navy white uniforms were so very easy to get dirt stains on. Just bumping against something left a mark.

In the Coat Guard I use to spray my work boondockers (steeltoes) with high gloss black enamel spray paint.
