Wearing Your Uniform: Do's and Don'ts


Always proper: After separation, it is appropriate to wear your uniform during Reserve duty.

Sometimes proper: Under certain conditions, you may wear your uniform as a civilian. Generally, if you served honorably, you may wear your uniform:

  • For military weddings, funerals, memorial services, or inaugural ceremonies.
  • For patriotic parades on national holidays and for any military parades.
  • For ceremonies in which a U.S. active or Reserve unit is taking part.

Never proper: Never wear the uniform under circumstances that would detract from its prestige or tend to discredit the Armed Forces (such as attending a totalitarian or subversive function or while engaging in a business activity). Also, it is against the law for unauthorized persons to wear a uniform of the U.S. Armed Forces.
