    What is the story on senior officers in general, and Generals in particular, wearing cammies in non working and out-of-theater situations?

    What happened to the dress uniform for administrators?

    Anyone?

    Dress uniforms have pretty much been relegated to formal events and generals have always had a certain degree of personal choice of uniform.

    Dude, It is the installation Commanders call. Most all bases I've noticed the dress of the day is BDU.

    The Uniform of the Day is ALWAYS either winter dress blues or summer dress whites on any Naval base at least. BDU's are considered the WORKING uniform of the day regardless of rank. Officers have the option to go with several types of working uniforms. Not too sure about the other services.
