Chief announces Navy uniform changes

The Chief of naval personnel released NAVADMIN 149-09 to announce the latest changes to Navy uniform policies including maternity uniforms, physical fitness uniforms, the Air Force Space Badge and changes to uniform board membership.

"Uniform policy changes are a direct result of fleet feedback to the uniform board," said Rob Carroll, from the Navy's Uniform Matters Office. "The input Sailors provide is critical to providing professional high quality uniforms."

In answer to that fleet feedback, the Navy is developing a new element to the physical fitness uniform (PTU) to replace or augment current Navy sweat pants and shirts. This fall, a competitive wear-test of two Navy designed PTU fitness suits will determine their suitability as mandatory uniform components. Fleet introduction is expected during fiscal year 2011.

Additionally, a new high performance version of the physical training uniform will be made available this winter. The optional PTU shirt and short will be manufactured from a "name brand" company and will follow the existing manner and occasion for wear as the standard fitness gear.

Another major component of the NAVADMIN addresses changes to the maternity uniform policy. Sailors E-1 to E6 who are pregnant, are temporarily authorized to wear the service khaki maternity blouse currently worn by chiefs and officers with the winter blue maternity slacks or skirt. This is an interim authorization until the improved single design maternity blouse for all ranks is introduced to the fleet in fiscal year 2010.

The NAVADMIN also includes new rules for uniform board membership to enhance fleet representation and publicize the fact that Sailors can no longer wear the Air Force Space badge due to its reclassification as an Air Force qualification.
