  •  When my youngest daughter worked (9+ / 0-)

    for the Sheriff's Department, she was assigned to corrections.  Correctional officer standard issue uniforms are Class D.  She loves her BDUs, which are better when there is a fight to break up.  When she left the sheriff's department to take her present job patrolling, they wear Class A uniforms year round. Her current assignment is at a large hospital and medical school complex.  She says she wishes she could continue to wear her BDUs because they are a lot more comfortable and flexible.

    I explained to her the the Class D uniform made her look like a SWAT officer and that is not necessarily a good thing when dealing with the public.

    When General McChrystal came to the White House for his famous meeting with President Obama after his famous "foot in mouth" interview with Rolling Stone, the General wore desert camo BDUs and boots.  I really thought that was inappropriate for an official meeting with the Commander in Chief.
