    I'm glad to see the regulation that allows MP Sgts not wear their berets is in force

    Be sure and get onto him about it when he gets back you pompous goon. And the entire battalion who are masquerading around in green dry flos too. Discipline completely gone by the board

    He's trying to look cool - don't you know it's physically impossibly to look cool with a red beret on your head? Too bad for him, it's also impossible to look cool with a red beret, or the letters "MP", visible anywhere on your person

    Yeah I agree.

    God forbid the man doesn't follow all dress regulations while he's over there.... Ya better get onto the CoS about all the lads wearing their dri flo's rather than a DPM outer layer while you're at it

    That'd be almost as bad as modifying your issued dropleg respirator pouch so putting it on didn't take 10 minutes.....oh wait, people are getting charged for that too!

    Never underestimate the ability for the army to get stupidly anal at the most inappropriate of times.

    Quick question?
    i know this isn't a respirator pouch but it shall still work as my example,
    does the new issue respirator pouch NOT have the clips that are on this drop leg that attach the different sides together, the ones circled in red????

    There is no clips for securing the pouch to your leg.

    Mores the pity, would have made more sense. I find it better to attach the clip-straps to ur staple belt and leave the pouch on ur leg rather than attached to the vest. Less awkward

    So from what i'm getting the pouch just hangs down and isn't attached to your leg at all, so what is all this about people being charged with modifying them then?????

    There are elastic loops on the drop pouches that you have to step into.

    Thats why people were modifying them and putting clips on the straps.
    Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they have to say something.
