SUBJ/TASK FORCE UNIFORM UPDATE//
GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. THIS NAVADMIN ANNOUNCES THE IMPLEMENTATION PLAN FOR THE NEW E-1
THROUGH O-10 NAVY WORKING UNIFORM AND THE E1 THROUGH E6 YEAR ROUND SERVICE UNIFORM. IT IS THE FIRST IN A SERIES OF MESSAGES TO INFORM OUR SAILORS AND PREPARE THEM FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF THESE NEW UNIFORMS.

2. INTRODUCTION OF THE NAVY WORKING UNIFORM AND SERVICE UNIFORM WILL OCCUR OVER A 24 MONTH PERIOD USING NAVY EXCHANGE UNIFORM CENTERS BEGINNING IN THE SUMMER OF 2008. FLEET OUTFITTING WILL BE INCREMENTAL AND START FIRST WITH THE LARGEST FLEET CONCENTRATION AREAS. RECRUIT
TRAINING COMMAND GREAT LAKES WILL BEGIN RECEIVING THE NEW UNIFORMS IN THE BEGINNING OF FY-09. UNIFORMS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE TO ALL REGIONS WITHIN 24 MONTHS OF THE INITIAL ROLLOUT.

3. THIS UNIFORM INTRODUCTION APPROACH PERMITS FLEXIBILITY DURING THE UNIFORM PHASE-IN PROCESS (TO MANAGE RESOURCES EFFECTIVELY WITHIN EXISTING LOGISTICAL CONSTRAINTS), ENSURES THE NEW UNIFORMS CONFORM TO FLEET STANDARDS AND REQUIREMENTS, AND FACILITATES THE PHASE OUT OF THOSE UNIFORMS ITEMS THAT WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE SEABAG. DURING THE
24 MONTH PHASE-IN PERIOD BOTH CURRENT AND NEW UNIFORMS WILL BE AUTHORIZED FOR WEAR.

4. TO HELP ENLISTED SAILORS PURCHASE THE NEW UNIFORMS DURING THE PHASE-IN PERIOD, ANNUAL CLOTHING REPLACEMENT ALLOWANCES WILL INCREASE IN FY-08 AND FY-09. DRILLING RESERVISTS (E-1 THROUGH E-9), WILL RECEIVE NEW UNIFORMS THROUGH THEIR NAVY OPERATIONAL SUPPORT COMMAND.

5. NAVY UNIFORM REGULATIONS ARE BEING REVISED TO REFLECT POLICY GUIDANCE ON THE MANNER AND OCCASIONS FOR WEAR FOR THE NAVY WORKING UNIFORM AND SERVICE UNIFORM. A COMPLETELY REVISED UNIFORM REGULATION MANUAL WILL BE ISSUED PRIOR TO THE ROLL OUT OF THESE NEW UNIFORMS.
DURING THE TWO-YEAR TRANSITION PERIOD, SAILORS ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN A COMPLETE INVENTORY OF SEA BAG ITEMS REFLECTING A PROFESSIONAL APPEARANCE.

6. ADDITIONAL DETAILS ON THE ROLLOUT OF THE NEW UNIFORMS AND OTHER TASK FORCE UNIFORM INITIATIVES WILL BE ANNOUNCED VIA FUTURE NAVADMINS AND POSTED ON THE TASK FORCE UNIFORM WEB SITE AT HTTP://WWW.NPC.NAVY.MIL/COMMANDSUPPORT/USNAVYUNIFORMS/TASKFORCEUNIFOR
