... Raymond Chandler, the sergeant major of the Army, tells Army Times correspondent Lance Bacon that in preparing updated Army regulations on grooming and appearance, he's taken to Facebook to debate the finer points of French manicures, earrings, pony tails, and tattoos for U.S. troops...

No more DADT and now we have the Army discussing French manicures, earrings, pony tails and that’s just the men......./S
It won’t take long to turn our military into just a larger version of the Dutch Army, complete with a union, transvestite troopers, and an elite Bicycle Corps.
Pretty soon they will give the option of civilian clothing while on duty.
SOLDIER: “Yeth, but where can I go to get a Brazillian body wax???”
Talking about this shows what a cluster f*** the services have become.
Can’t have someone chip a nail on the battlefield.....
OMG it would like so totally ruin your entire day....
This could get ugly. It smells like pre-GWOT, garrison Army stuff starting to come back now that the GWOT is (prematurely) winding down.
The only reason I don’t start howling at the moon in protest is b/c this SMA is the guy who killed the beret in ACUs, so he obviously has some common sense.
Time will tell.

Yep. Saw them in Kosovo. Would not have recognized except they were armed.
I don't believe the Dutch army has won a war since the War of the Palatine Succession ended in 1697.
I am in mourning for my country. I grieve for my grandchildren and great grand children.
Please dear God save us and restore us to what we were before the PC crowd took over. Amen
And they barely squeaked by in that one.

On behalf of those of us serving in the Army, especially those who are standing on the wall tonight, thank all of you for your continued support. Your comments truly show what you REALLY think about us.
Get a sense of humor.
Take a flying leap.
Your sarc tag is broken.
I have the utmost repect for real soldiers who enlisted in a real army.
Too bad for you that the fags are now welcome. But - who didn’t see all this coming?
The comment was towards the policy which the political leaders made and not towards the military members who are serving.
That’s not what you said, now is it?
I'm a woman. I like nice clothes and a good hair style. I understand manicures/pedicures...but the bizarre fingernails made out of liquid acrylic? I am suspect of any female who does this. Not only does it look tacky (from just plain poor taste to the ridiculous)...but it makes me wonder what kind of mind they have. Honestly. I normally don't judge people, too much, on appearance if they are clean and neat...but these just set off a red flag...The longer and more intricately “designed” the bigger the flag.
Am I the only one?
Anyway, rant over. I'm sickened to see our wonderful military (the one thing the govt. does well) messed with.
No. No ear rings for men and no fake talons for the women. Stick with the tried and true. It has worked well...oh, I know, saying that makes me a “hater”. YET ANOTHER thing I hate...the ghetto-ization of our language. Arrrrrrrrrrrrgh.
Saddle shoes, vinyl bustiers, and toe rings were also mentioned.
One more step in taking our military professionalism down a few more notches.
Best to say we disagree and leave it at that.
