From a piece at Milblogging.com:
Apparently, Team Maxwell-Gunter at Maxwell Air Force Base earned very low marks for standards in 2011. "Disregarding them shows a lack of attention to detail and a lack of respect to our service. It shows disregard to our core values." writes Jeff Bergdolt of the 42nd Air Base Wing Plans Office.Dang. I would have been a permanent feature on this Hit Parade, had USAF adopted this sorta thang back in the day. From an old post...
While news of uniform violations may not be all that interesting, here's where the story gets juicy.
In the coming months, Maxwell AFB photographers will capture pictures of standards violations across Maxwell Air Force base and post them in the Dispatch. Then readers will be challenged to identify the violation.
Fashionistas are going to have a field day with this.
...what used to be known as AFR 35-10... the bane of my military existence and a perpetual thorn in my non-conformist side... but is now AFI 36-2903. (Minor digression: Today's Modern Air Force doesn't have regulations; it has "instructions." This irritates me slightly, an unusual position for a non-conformist to take. Whatevah.)You have NO ideer, Gentle Reader, how many times I shot myself in the foot over "personal appearance" issues. It took me a loooong time to grow up. Wait. Check that -- it hasn't happened yet.
