Marines Sleeves Up Policy No. 078/14 Ends “Sleeves Down” Debate

Posted: February 27th, 2014 in Nation by LALATE

Marines Sleeves Up Order No. 078/14 Ends Sleeves Down Policy

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – A Marines Sleeves Up policy was announced last night ending a roughly two year old “sleeves down” policy. The official Marine administrative message, Order No. 078/14, signed by Maj. Gen. Mike Regner, ended the controversial policy on February 26, 2014. In declaring the new policy, the staff director at Marine Corps headquarters ended roughly two years of debate on the subject.

In a joint news statement posted last night on Facebook, General James Amos, the commandant, and the corps Sergeant Major Michael Barrett, said that the policy will take effect on March 9, 2014. It governs desert camouflage and concerns noncombat areas. But Amos tells news that the new adoption was considered for sometime.

Despite a sixty-one percent opposition at the time, Marine Corps Uniform Board adopted the sleeves down policy in 2011. They claimed that the policy would education Marine to “train as you fight.” Other disagreed.

“I can’t tell you how many times we have been asked the persistent question, ‘Commandant, are we ever going to return to SLEEVES UP?’ General James Amos, the commandant, and the corps Sergeant Major Michael Barrett, said last night. “I’ve thought a lot about this over the past 2.5 years; I realize that it’s important to you. Sleeves up clearly and visually sets us apart … “WE HEAR YOU MARINES!” Roughly twenty-five thousand likes followed the Facebook post in the first few hours.
