Reminder to Sailors That Placing Hands in Pockets While in Uniform is Against Regulations


A SAILOR FROM USS GEORGE WASHINGTON WANTS
TO KNOW WHAT THE RULES ARE REGARDING HAVING YOUR HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS WHILE IN UNIFORM.
MORE SPECIFICALLY, IF YOU CAN HAVE YOUR HANDS IN YOUR POCKETS AS LONG AS YOU’RE STATIONARY. COMMAND MASTER CHIEF MARTHA KASTLER, FROM
THE NAVY UNIFORM MATTER OFFICE SAYS THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS, NO, YOU CANNOT HAVE YOUR HANDS
IN YOUR POCKETS. FOR A MORE THOROUGH EXPLANATION, SEE THE US
NAVY UNIFORM REGULATIONS, CHAPTER ONE, SECTION ONE, PARAGRAPH THREE.
UNDER ENFORCEMENT, IT IS CLEARLY STATED “WHILE IN UNIFORM, IT IS INAPPROPRIATE AND DETRACTS
FROM MILITARY SMARTNESS FOR PERSONNEL TO HAVE THEIR HANDS IN THEIR POCKETS.” YOU SHOULD ALWAYS STRIVE TO LOOK YOUR BEST
IN UNIFORM, SO IF YOUR HANDS ARE THAT COLD, PUT ON SOME GLOVES. FOR ALL HANDS UPDATE,
I’M PETTY OFFICER BRANDIE WILLS.

  1. I wish the same rules applied to our Commander in Chief – I think it looks very unprofessional to be walking with hands in your pockets even in civilian clothes.

  2. Hi, I'm the US Navy and I worry about petty bullshit while taxpayers spend their hard earned money paying for our military members to spend 90% of their time not doing what they're paid to do. "Hey, that report you need to write, put it off until tomorrow because today you need to spend 4 hours getting training on how to be safe on Halloween. We can't organize our nation's defense but at least you will know to dress in bright colors while trick or treating!"

  3. The military has some of the most asinine and outdated rules. The no hands in the pocket rule is just one of many. The "Lone Sailor" has his hands in his pockets of his peacoat for crying out loud. Don't worry, the new generation will change these primitive and draconian rules and regs so that way we don't have to deal with the whole "do as I say, not as I do" crap anymore. One common trend I noticed with many people including myself while serving was the jackass E-7 and above or officer would yell at someone for a minor violation (i.e. Hands in pocket, even while deployed in a warzone inside a tent) then we would catch him or her doing the same god damn thing moments later with no fuck given even when they know we can see them. Hypocrisy is rampant in the Navy and because of it being all too common we need a major reform.

  4. The problem is the very same people that tell the junior sailors about their hand being in their pockets are the ones that's doing the same thing, but it's wrong if the hi Joe sailor correct them, it's all bullshit

  5. Are you guys really bitching about hands in the pockets? the pettiness that you are stooping to is easily to see that you are the issue.  You will definitely not make it in the military if you have to bitch about this.

  6. Wow, that person went through great lengths to get his question answered. This just tells you how dumb and lazy this new generation of sailors are. The uniform regs has been there since day one. You're telling me that Sailor could've found this answer in 5mins, instead he would rather wait and stand by in front of the Tv everyday to hear it from the navy media? All that time on the their phones and internet, this idiot generation couldn't be bothered to use it to find real information. The future of the navy. Sad.

  7. Are we for real right now? Idk what I find more crazy, that the sailor went this far to get the question answered or the Navy spent the time, money and energy on answering the question.

  8. Well then fuck my ship would get fucked up because everyone in the fleet does it. My division officer does, my chief, LPO and everyone….

  9. While running, a couple of us had our hands in our pockets given that is 40 degrees F. Some short fat fuck tried running up to us to tell us to keep them out of our pockets. I laughed at him and kept doing it 😂
