    You know, you guys keep saying that the parade will honor the military, but I can tell you from experience that it is more of a pain in the ass than anything.

    You gotta get a haircut (10 bucks), you gotta get your uniform dry cleaned (15 bucks), if you have awards, you will have to get your ribbons and medals mounted (can be anywhere from a couple of bucks to a whole bunch. At the end of my career, it would cost me about 35 dollars to get them done). And, if you are lazy and don't know how to spit shine your shoes, it could be the cost of a pair of corafam shoes (shiny plastic shoes that look good for inspection, 45 bucks).

    And, you have to spend all that money just to look good for a couple of hours. And yes, there is ALWAYS a personnel inspection before an event like this.

    Isn't keeping your hair cut and groomed, cleaned and pressed uniforms, and having ribbons, medals, and awards, sewn on per regulations, something service personal are expected to keep up with anyway?

    I know is was when I was in the military. .... :cool:

    Dress uniforms are different than regular everyday working uniforms, and generally, I only had to break mine out a couple of times a year, which is why I had them freshly dry cleaned before an inspection. Keeping up with my uniform patches and ribbons was something I did, but mounting new medals was left for whenever I had a major inspection like this because it was expensive, and I only updated my medal bar when I had major inspections like this, which was maybe once or twice a year.

    And, a fresh haircut is something I always got the day before. Yes, I kept in grooming standards, but if I had been a week or so since my last haircut, a new one would be required for the inspection, just to make sure.

    Then you know that there is a difference between everyday working uniforms and dress uniforms. Yes, I had 3 pairs of working blues, 3 pairs of working whites, and around 5 pairs of dungarees, but only 1 set of Crackerjacks (dress blues), and because I only had to wear them a couple of times a year, that is why I had them freshly dry cleaned. Why only 1 pair of Crackerjacks and 3 or more pairs of the other uniforms? Crackerjacks were around 350 for just the pants and top, whereas the other uniforms were about 45 bucks a pair.
