Tough new rules for blue cammies released

Sailors hoping for less stringent rules with the new Navys new blue and gray cammies might be disappointed.

The new Navy Working Uniform will debut around the fleet Dec. 15, when senior leadership, commanding officers and command master chiefs will be allowed to wear the digital camouflage uniform, which will become required gear for everyone on Dec. 31, 2010.

But dont expect to see anyone wearing the uniform in an off-base grocery store, which is allowed in the Army and Air Force. Navy officials have instead decided to stick with the restrictions in effect for the existing utility and wash khaki uniforms, which the NWU replaces.

Sailors can wear the uniform to and from work, either in an automobile or by public transportation, but they can not make any stops along the way. The only exception to the rule is for emergencies, although it is not clear what qualifies as an emergency at this point.

The news is expected to be announced in a NavAdmin message scheduled to be released Tuesday. The message also spells out how sailors are to configure and wear the NWU and will include the official fleet rollout schedule.

1. Sounds like UPS
UPS drivers are not allowed to wear their browns to or from work-you've never seen one in the grocery store or at a gas station.

Seems strange. When I was in the Army some guys lived in the BDU's
